Former Eagles president and general manager Harry Gamble passed away Tuesday morning.
After playing high school football at Pitman and college football at Rider, the longtime South Jersey resident embarked on a long career of coaching and administration. He went from Clayton High School to Audubon, then Lafayette College, then the University of Pennsylvania.
In 1981, the Eagles hired him as a volunteer assistant. Four years later, he moved to the team's front office, where he remained until 1985.
The Eagles posted a 96-78-1 record in his tenure.
Gamble's son Tom is now the Eagles' vice president of player personnel.
