Jets continue GM search, with Gamble front-runner

Posted: Updated:

By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. 

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets are moving forward with their search for a new general manager, with San Francisco 49ers executive Tom Gamble appearing to be the front-runner to replace Mike Tannenbaum.

Gamble, the 49ers' director of player personnel, met with the Jets over the weekend, and he canceled a second interview with Jacksonville and postponed a meeting with San Diego for their GM vacancies, according to published reports.

New York also spoke with Atlanta director of player personnel David Caldwell.

The Jets are still expected to interview Marc Ross, the Giants' director of college scouting, and in-house candidate Scott Cohen, the team's assistant GM under Tannenbaum. The meeting with Ross will satisfy the NFL's "Rooney Rule," which mandates that teams must interview at least one minority candidate for front-office and head coaching jobs.
