Report: Bucs, Dolphins request permission to interview Tom Gamble

When the Dolphins parted ways with General Manager Jeff Ireland this week, one of the first names mentioned as a potential candidate to replace him was Eagles V.P. of player personnel Tom Gamble.

Gamble’s name wasn’t been part of any reports of the interviews that the team’s been lining up over the last couple of days, but that changed on Friday afternoon. Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Dolphins have requested permission to interview Gamble for the opening. Caplan adds that the Bucs have also requested permission for an interview, but there’s no word on when or if the interview will take place.

Gamble moved to the Eagles from the 49ers in February 2013 and began his NFL career in Philly in 1988 when his father was the team’s president. He also worked for the Jets and Colts before making his way to San Francisco. Gamble interviewed for G.M. jobs last offseason before heading the Philadelphia to work under General Manager Howie Roseman.

The Dolphins and Bucs also have shared interest in Giants exec Marc Ross as they work through the process of finding their next general manager.
