Bucs, Dolphins Want To Interview Gamble
The Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Bucs have notified the Eagles of their intention to interview Tom Gamble for their vacant general manager positions, a source confirmed.
Adam Caplan was first with the report.
Interested teams do not have to request permission for an interview when it comes to potential promotions of this stature, but instead notify the current employer of their intentions. It is not yet clear whether Gamble will accept the opportunity to interview for these jobs.
Jason Cole of the National Football Post earlier in the week described Gamble as a leading candidate for the Miami gig, though several other names have since been thrown into the mix.
The Eagles added Gamble as vice president of player personnel last February to replace Ryan Grigson, who went to Indianapolis. Gamble first spent time with the Eagles’ organization from 1988 to 1994. He spent eight seasons with the San Francisco 49ers – seven as director of pro personnel and one as director of player personnel – before rejoining the Eagles. He previously worked as a college scout for the Indianapolis Colts as well.
Multiple teams with GM openings showed interest in Gamble last offseason, but ultimately he landed in Philadelphia and reported to Howie Roseman.
In related news: Adam Schefter reported that Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor interviewed for Miami’s offensive coordinator job on Wednesday, but the Dolphins are now “zeroing in” on Kyle Shanahan, Gary Kubiak, and Ben McAdoo.
Pat Shurmur has not netted any head coaching interviews, we’re told.
