PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles say Harry Gamble, who served as an assistant coach, general manager and later as team president, has died. He was 83.

The team says in a statement that Gamble died Tuesday.

After playing at Rider College in New Jersey, Gamble went on to be head football coach at Lafayette College from 1967 to 1970 before becoming head coach at Penn in 1971. He remained there until 1980 and was the NCAA District 1 Coach of the Year in 1972.

He joined the Eagles in 1981 as a volunteer assistant under Dick Vermeil and was team president from 1986 to 1994.

Gamble, a native of Pitman, N.J., is survived by his wife, Joan; his sons, Harry and Tom; and three grandchildren. Tom Gamble is the Eagles' vice president of player personnel.
