The search for the next New York Jets general manager continues, and Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area is reporting that Tom Gamble, the current director of player personel for the San Francisco 49ers, will interview for the position this weekend.
The Jets fired former general manager Mike Tannebaum on Monday after the team failed to make the playoffs for the second year in a row.
Gamble has spent the past seven years with his current team and has helped build the 49ers into a power in the NFC. He has 24 years of NFL experience including two with the Jets, where he served as a quality-control defensive assistant in 1995 and 1996. He also has a variety of experience in the professional and college scouting departments and in contract negotiations.
The Jets aren't the only team interested in Gamble, as he already interviewed Tuesday for the open general manager position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
