Gene Stallings, Dallas Cowboy assistant coach, was named Monday to succeed Jim Hanifan as coach of the St. Louis Cardinals, filling the last coaching vacancy in the National Football League. Hanifan and his assistants were fired 15 minutes after the Cardinals' final game, which left them with a 5-11 record. Critics contended that Hanifan, who was popular with his players, had been too soft a disciplinarian. Stallings, 50, like Patriot Coach Raymond Berry, is a native of Paris, Tex.

After 33 years as a football coach, Jim Hanifan, the pride of the 1950 Covina High Colts, made it to the Super Bowl this year with the Washington Redskins. And he is a principal reason they are here. His offensive line, which protected quarterback Mark Rypien devotedly through the Redskins' 14-2 regular season, gave up only nine sacks. The record, seven, was set by the Miami Dolphins one season when Dan Marino invariably let the ball fly at the first sign of trouble.
