The 49ers promoted Tom Gamble to director of player personnel on Friday.

"We are very fortunate to have a guy with the wide range of experience that Tom possesses," said 49ers GM Trent Baalke. "He's worked with some of the best in the business throughout his career, and has been around football his entire life. As good as he is at what he does professionally; he's an even better person and a great fit for the 49ers."

Gamble will oversee both college and pro personnel efforts. He had been the team's director of pro personnel since 2005.
