There has been one major question regarding Oklahoma State’s coaching staff the past week: Who is going to be the next offensive coordinator? That’s still to be announced, but a piece to that puzzle has fit into place.

OSU announced the hire of Tim Rattay as its quarterbacks coach Friday. For the first time in a long time, OSU has a quarterbacks coach that isn’t also the offensive coordinator.

“I’m excited about the opportunity with a very talented young quarterback returning and being around Coach (Mike) Gundy,” Rattay said in a release. “Watching Oklahoma State from afar, I’ve always been impressed with how they play with tempo, how they play offensively and how they compete every game. With how respected Coach Gundy and his whole staff are in the college community, that was a huge plus. I’m excited to get in there and start working.”

Rattay, 42, joins after coaching the Washington Redskins’ quarterbacks this past NFL season. He spent 2015 to 2018 coaching QBs at his alma mater, Louisiana Tech.

Rattay is Louisiana Tech’s single-season (46) and career (115) leader in passing touchdowns. He threw for 4,943 passing yards in 1998. His 411.9 passing yards per game that season is the ninth-best single-season mark in FBS history.

Rattay was taken in the seventh round of the 2000 NFL Draft, and he played in the league until 2007. In that time, Rattay threw for 4,853 yards with 31 touchdowns.

“Tim is a really experienced and sound quarterbacks coach,” Gundy said. “He is the son of a high school coach and brings a unique perspective as a former NFL quarterback himself.”
