Rams will interview 49ers’ Tom Gamble for G.M. position

The St. Louis Rams have identified the ninth candidate to interview for their vacant general manager position: San Francisco 49ers Director of Player Personnel Tom Gamble.

Gamble will be the last G.M. candidate to interview, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports, so a decision is apparently not far off.

The Rams have conducted an exhaustive search, with Gamble’s interview following interviews for George Paton, Joey Clinkscales, Lake Dawson, Brian Gaine, Ron Hill, Steve Keim, Les Snead and Ryan Grigson. Some candidates have already interviewed twice, and Grigson has already accepted the Colts’ G.M. position.

Gamble was hired by the 49ers in 2005 and has previously been a scout for the Colts, Ravens and Eagles, and a quality control coach for the Jets.
