Former University of Wisconsin quarterback Jim Haluska was named Tuesday as head football and baseball coach at Don Bosco High School.

Haluska played quarterback for the Racine Raiders of the Tri-State League during the last two seasons. He also assisted with the freshman squad at Wisconsin.

In 1955 Haluska was the No. 2 passer in the Big Ten and set Wisconsin records for passes attempted, completed, for completion percentage and for yards gained.

He was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1955, played infrequently, and was traded to the Cleveland Browns in 1957.

Haluska, who succeeds Ed Callahan in the coaching position, will take over his new duties Aug. 16. He is returning to the Milwaukee Catholic Conference as a coach after starring in football for Racine St. Catherine in 1948-39.

Callahan has accepted a coaching position at Rockford, MI.
