Former NFL quarterback and veteran college coach Timm Rosenbach (pronounced "ROSE-en-bah") was named UNLV offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2013. Under his guidance, the Rebel offensive attack set multiple records, including scoring the second-most points in school history and shattering the program mark for first downs in a game and a season. Senior quarterback Caleb Herring came off the bench and turned in the most efficient season ever at UNLV, completing a record 63% of his attempts for 2,718 yards, 24 touchdowns and just five interceptions.
An experienced play-caller, Rosenbach worked for five years on the staff at his alma mater, Pac-12 Conference program Washington State, and another season overseeing the offense at New Mexico State.
Rosenbach spent 2012 overseeing the offense at the University of Montana and also served three seasons coaching at Eastern Washington, including running an offense that led the nation in yards and scoring in 2001.
As a player, Rosenbach was a record-breaking Pac-10 quarterback and finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1988. He was a first-round pick in the 1989 supplemental NFL draft, taken by the then-Phoenix Cardinals. In his second season with the club, Rosenbach started all 16 games and threw for more than 3,000 yards and 16 touchdowns. Injuries cut short his professional playing career, which also included a season playing for Hamilton in the CFL.
Rosenbach earned his bachelor's degree in social sciences from WSU in 2005. He is married to former professional volleyball player Kim Exner and the couple has two daughters.
