Tom Gamble
Assistant General Manager

BIOGRAPHY

A successful talent evaluator with a plethora of NFL experience, Tom Gamble returned to the 49ers as the team’s senior personnel executive during the 2015 offseason after spending the previous two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles as their vice president of player personnel.

Gamble’s extensive NFL resume includes work in both college and pro scouting, contract negotiations and a stint in the coaching ranks. During his time in the league, Gamble has helped produce 12 playoff teams, including five with Indianapolis, five with Philadelphia and two with San Francisco.

In 2012, Gamble oversaw both the college and pro personnel efforts of the 49ers while working closely with general manager Trent Baalke. With assistance from Gamble, the 49ers tied for the NFL-lead with nine Pro Bowl selections and advanced to Super Bowl XLVII.

Prior to being named director of player personnel, Gamble served as the director of pro personnel for the previous seven seasons in San Francisco. In that role, Gamble monitored every NFL roster with an emphasis on scouting talent of upcoming free agents, while also maintaining continuous depth of personnel of the 49ers roster. In 2010, he was assigned additional responsibilities in collegiate scouting in order to maximize the use of his talent evaluation expertise.

Before arriving in San Francisco, Gamble served as a college scout for the Colts from 1998-04 under veteran NFL executive Bill Polian.

From 1995-96, Gamble held a stint in the coaching ranks as a defensive assistant/quality control coach with the New York Jets. He then returned to player evaluation as a part-time college scout for the Carolina Panthers before serving as a pro scout for the Baltimore Ravens during the 1997 season.    

Gamble originally entered the NFL in 1988 as an assistant in the Eagles player personnel department. He stayed with the Eagles through 1994, serving as a college scouting administrator, area scout, contract negotiator and the team’s director of pro scouting during his tenure.

Gamble earned his bachelor’s degree from High Point University in 1987 and a master’s degree from Rowan University in 1988. He grew up in a football family, where his father, Harry, was formerly the general manager (1985) and president (1986-95) of the Eagles, while also holding a stint coaching Philadelphia’s tight ends/special teams from 1981-82. He also served as the head coach at both the University of Pennsylvania and Lafayette College.

Gamble and his wife, Juliette, have three sons, Tom, Gregory and Matthew.
