Former Chicago Bears college scouting director Greg Gabriel is back in the NFL.
Gabriel has been hired as a senior college scout by the Philadelphia Eagles. He will work primarily in the Midwest.
Gabriel served under former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo from 2001 through the 2010 draft before he was fired. Angelo ran off Gabriel and pro personnel director Bobby DePaul to create a job for Tim Ruskell. The Angelo/Ruskell front office lasted two seasons before Angelo was fired two days after the end of the 2011 season.
Nearly all of the college scouts that worked under Gabriel when he was with the Bears recently were extended or promoted by new general manager Phil Emery.
Gabriel, who has served previously for the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills, worked for the past year for the National Football Post as a columnist.
