James Dooley - 1958 Topps

James William Dooley (1930-2008) (B/E/FL/TE) played both sides of the ball at the University of Miami as a wide receiver and defensive back and was named an All-American with the Hurricanes. He stunned the favored Clemson Tigers as he picked off four passes in the 1952 Gator Bowl. The Chicago Bears selected Dooley with the eighth overall pick of the 1952 NFL Draft. His first few seasons were interrupted by a two-year stint in the Air Force, but upon his return, he helped the Bears reach the 1956 NFL League Championship game that they lost to the New York Giants. Jim played eight seasons for the Bears (1952-1954, 1956-1957, 1959-1961), compiled 3,172 receiving yards on 211 receptions adding 16 touchdowns in 81 career games. Following his playing days, Dooley worked his way through the coaching ranks, eventually relieving legendary coach George Halas as the head coach of the Bears. In four seasons, he compiled a record of 20-36-0 in 56 games.
