Montana Football Head Coach Robin Pflugrad has been busy the last couple of months filling his coaching staff.
On Wednesday afternoon, he announced that Former Washington State and National Football League quarterback Timm Rosenbach will be his new Offensive Coordinator.
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.
Rosenbach (Rose-en-bah) set WSU single-season records in 1988 for total offense (3,422), passing yards (3,097), touchdown passes (24) and touchdowns responsible for (34) as the Cougars' quarterback. His total offense yards and passing yards per game were also Pac-10 records. He also had the highest quarterback rating in the nation that year, completing 218 of 338 passes with just 11 interceptions and 24 TD throws.
He was then the second pick in a supplemental NFL draft, taken by the Arizona Cardinals. Rosenbach was with the Cardinals for four years, and then spent a year (1994) with Hamilton of the Canadian Football League. In 1995, he signed a contract to play with the New Orleans Saints, but had to give up his career before the season because of a ruptured disk in his back.
After seeing spot duty his rookie year in 1989, Rosenbach started all 16 games in 1990, taking every offensive snap for the Phoenix Cardinals. He played for the Cardinals from 1989-92, but missed the 1991 season because of a knee injury suffered in training camp.
Timm is married to former professional volleyball player Kim Exner. Kim and Timm have a five-year-old daughter, Reece Tammy. He earned his B.A. degree at WSU in social sciences in 2005.
