The Concord, Calif. native has served 24 years as an assistant coach in the NFL, including four as linebackers coach with the Cleveland Browns. In Cleveland, Haluchak developed a number of young linebackers including 2006 first round draft pick Kamerion Wimbley, who now plays for the Raiders. In 2008, Haluchak’s unit helped the Cleveland defense rank 14th in the NFL against the pass and 12th in the league in defense inside the 20-yard line. Before his stint in Cleveland, Haluchak spent two seasons (2003-04) as linebackers coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

During his 23 seasons in the NFL, Haluchak has coached three players to six Pro Bowl selections, including San Diego’s Junior Seau (1991), Washington’s Ken Harvey (1995-96) and New York’s Jesse Armstead (1997-99). Haluchak was a high school coach in Southern California from 1972-75 and entered the collegiate ranks as a graduate assistant at USC from 1976-77.
