Gamble began his NFL career working for the Eagles in 1988 and stayed until 1994, serving as a college scouting administrator, area scout, contract negotiator, and director of pro scouting. Gamble worked for the New York Jets as a defensive assistant/quality control coach from 1995-96. He became a pro scout for the Baltimore Ravens in 1997 before joining the Indianapolis Colts as a college scout from 1998-2004.

His father, Harry Gamble, was the Eagles' president from 1986-95.
