It was announced yesterday that our new Offensive Coordinator is former Washington State and National Football League quarterback Timm Rosenbach. He should bring some great excitement to the passing game and a great addition to the recruitment within the Northwest.

Former Washington State and National Football League quarterback Timm Rosenbach has been selected as the new offensive coordinator at The University of Montana, announced third-year UM head coach Robin Pflugrad.

“Timm has a lot ties to Missoula,” Pflugrad said “Timm’s father was a football coach here at The University of Montana and went on to Washington State as an administrator. The family knows a lot of people from the state of Montana and a lot of people from the state of Washington. He should be a great asset for us not only on the field, but in the recruiting area as well.”

Rosenbach, 45, was in private business last year and did not coach. Two seasons ago, in 2009, he was at New Mexico State, and served as the Aggies’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for one year.

Prior to NMSU, Rosenbach was the quarterbacks coach from 2003-07 at his alma mater Washington State. During his time with the Cougars, Rosenbach mentored second team All-Pac-10 selection Matt Kegel, who racked up 2,947 passing yards and 21 touchdowns in his first season as a starter. The Cougar passing offense finished third in the Pac-10 and 21st nationally, while WSU ranked eighth in the nation in total offense in 2005. Under Rosenbach’s tutelage, Alex Brink (2004-07) became WSU’s all-time leader in passing yards, completions, attempts and touchdowns.
