Richard Adam Bielski (born September 7, 1932) is a former American football player and coach. He played professionally in the National Football League (NFL) for the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, and Baltimore Colts. Bielski played college football at the University of Maryland.

Early years

Bielski was named an All-Maryland Scholastic Association fullback in Patterson Park High School.

He accepted a football scholarship with the University of Maryland, where he played as a fullback, linebacker, and placekicker.

In 1954 he was a preseason All-American candidate, but injuries affected his level of play during the season. Still, he was able to finish his college career averaging more than five yards per carry. At the end of the year, he was selected to play in the Chicago College All-Star Game, Senior Bowl, and the North-South Shrine Game, where he was voted the outstanding player of the game.

Professional career

Philadelphia Eagles

Bielski was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the first round with the ninth overall pick of the 1955 NFL Draft, becoming the highest-drafted running back from Maryland. During his first years, he made a team record two 50-yard field goals. He was converted into an end in 1957. After the 1959 season, the Eagles left him off their list of players who were exempt from the 1960 NFL Expansion Draft.

Dallas Cowboys

Bielski was acquired by the Dallas Cowboys in the 1960 NFL Expansion Draft.[1] He was involved in the record for the shortest touchdown pass in league history, after catching an Eddie LeBaron pass from the 2-inch line against the Redskins on October 9, 1960.[2] He had 4 receptions for 38 yards.

In 1961 he earned his only Pro Bowl berth, with career highs of 26 receptions for 377 yards and three touchdowns. He also took over the placekicker duties from Allen Green for the final five games of the season.

During the 1962 offseason, needing help on defense, the Cowboys traded Bielski to the Baltimore Colts in a three-team deal. The Colts sent a third round draft pick (#33, used to select Mike Fracchia) to the St. Louis Cardinals, and in return the Cardinals sent safety/punter Jerry Norton to the Cowboys.[3]

Baltimore Colts

In 1962, Bielski played as a fullback and placekicker. He spent two seasons with the Baltimore Colts before retiring. In a nine-year career he had 107 receptions for 1,305 yards, 229 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns. He also kicked 58 extra points and 26 field goals.

Coaching career

After his playing career, he enter the coaching ranks. He served as an assistant coach with the Washington Redskins for four seasons,[4] and as a wide receivers coach for the Baltimore Colts under head coach Don Shula.[5]

Bielski coached the Washington Federals of the United States Football League as offensive coordinator and then head coach for the final 17 games of the 1984 season,[6] going 3–14.
