Timm Rosenbach returned to Montana Grizzlies with championships in mind

MISSOULA – Bobby Hauck is in his second stint as Montana’s head football coach, but offensive coordinator Timm Rosenbach is back for another stint, as well.

Rosenbach served as the offensive coordinator under Mick Delaney in the 2012 season. The Griz were the No. 14 offense in the FCS that year with more than 450 yards per game. Rosenbach has deep ties to Montana, playing some high school football at Missoula Hellgate while his father served as an assistant coach at UM in the 1980s.

Rosenbach left his head-coaching position at Division II Adams State to come coach with Hauck. The Grizzlies’ new offensive coordinator says he is simply excited to get back to a place he loves and have a shot at being atop the rankings.

“Me and my family both really enjoy Montana, and so anytime we had that opportunity, we said if it came around again — I mean, you get it once, much less get it twice, so we couldn’t pass it up and it’s great to be back,” Rosenbach said. “I left a head-coaching job to be a coordinator, but those things happen in this business. I want to win, be a part of winning a national championship with a team that can do that, and I think this is an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up, especially with the winning that has gone on here over the years.”
