“Tom is a great evaluator and has an eye for the type of individuals we want associated with our program,” Harbaugh said in a Michigan release. “Tom and I have a great track record together and he is one of those trusted agents and known friends of the Harbaugh family. His counsel, expertise and knowledge in the player personnel area will be a benefit to our players and staff. It’s great to have Tom back on our team.”

Gamble was Senior Personnel Executive for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021.

“I am excited to be working at Michigan again, helping this program in my role of player personnel director,” Gamble said via UM. “It was an easy decision to make regarding leaving the NFL to come and work with Coach Harbaugh for the third time. Coach is an individual that I thoroughly enjoy working with and I look forward to partnering with Jim and the staff in the acquisition and retention of our players.”
