The South Milwaukee varsity football team has a new head coach — but a legend is sticking around.
Derek Hoff, the team’s offensive coordinator last season, has replaced John Galewski, who will remain as freshman coach and still coach Rocket baseball.
Hoff replaces a legend. Galewski coached football for eight seasons, leading the Rockets to the WIAA playoffs each of the past five years and back-to-back conference titles the past two seasons.
Of course, this is in addition to his work with the baseball team. Galewski was inducted into the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2012. He has also coached basketball during his nearly 30 years with the school.
Hoff becomes only the fifth head Rocket varsity coach in the last 63 years. He also coaches the varsity girls’ basketball team. Hoff was a four-year letter winner, captain, all-conference wide receiver and graduate assistant coach at Wisconsin-Platteville.
