49ers Name Tom Gamble Senior Personnel Executive


The San Francisco 49ers brought back a familiar face as Tom Gamble will return to San Francisco serving as the team’s Senior Personnel Executive.

Gamble who was seen at length with 49ers GM Trent Baalke during Senior Bowl weekend will now work with Baalke once again.

Gamble worked with the 49ers front office from 2005 to 2012 while serving the last two of those years as Director of Player Personnel.

“Tom is one of the most experienced, knowledgeable, and respected personnel men in the business,” said Baalke. “He played an instrumental role in our personnel department from 2005-2012, and is well versed in our system having played a role in its development. This familiarity, along with his many strengths, will be tremendous assets as we prepare for free agency and the draft.  It is great to have Tom back with the 49ers.”

Gamble left the 49ers to become the Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel two years ago. A chance for him to move closer to his hometown, it was a match made in heaven. However, things soured and Gamble is now back under the Baalke regime.
