Jaguars ask to interview Tom Gamble for GM job, according to report

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars have requested permission to interview San Francisco 49ers personnel man Tom Gamble, according to a report.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have requested to interview Tom Gamble of the San Francisco 49ers, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Gamble is a name who should be familiar to Jaguars fans if they've paid attention to the front offices in the AFC South, but probably isn't a household name.

Gamble was a college scout directly under Bill Polian from 1998 to 2004 with the Indianapolis Colts, helping build a dominant football team. It's believed that Gamble left the Colts in 2004 when Chris Polian was promoted to Asst. General Manager/Football Operations.

Currently Gamble serves as the San Francisco 49ers Director of Player Personnel after having served as the Director of Pro Personnel for the past seven years. Gamble interviewed for the St. Louis Rams general manager position last season.

The Jaguars aren't the only team interested in Gamble, so it could force the Jaguars to make a substantial offer if he's their ideal choice. That shouldn't be a problem either, according to a report by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.

O'Halloran also reports that the move to get a new general manager will happen fast, as Khan was quick to dump Gene Smith after the season.
