Tom Gamble rejoins 49ers as senior personnel executive

SAN FRANCISCO — Tom Gamble is returning to the San Francisco 49ers as a senior personnel executive.

The 49ers announced Gamble's hiring Thursday.

Gamble spent the past two seasons as the vice president of player personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles. The team revamped its front office after the season, and the Eagles said they agreed to part ways.

Gamble spent the previous eight years with San Francisco, including the 2011 and 2012 seasons as director of player personnel. He's entering his 28th season in the NFL.

General manager Trent Baalke says Gamble “is one of the most experienced, knowledgeable, and respected personnel men in the business.” He says Gamble played an instrumental role in the 49ers' personnel department previously and his familiarity with the organization should make his transition smooth.
