Oklahoma State hired Tim Rattay as the program’s new quarterbacks coach Friday afternoon. Rattay, who spent last season with the Washington Redskins after six seasons at Louisiana Tech, will replace Sean Gleeson, who left to the offensive coordinator at Rutgers.
Rattay spent the 2019 season working with Dwayne Haskins and Case Keenum in Washington. Prior to that he was the quarterbacks and wide receivers coach at Louisiana Tech, his alma mater.
Rattay spent eight seasons in the NFL, including six with San Francisco after being drafted by the 49ers in 2000.
According to okstate.com:
His NFL career included stops in Tampa Bay in 2006, Tennessee in 2007 and Arizona in 2007. Rattay appeared in 40 games in his career with 18 starts and finished 432-of-714 passing for 4,853 yards with 31 touchdowns
Rattay is excited to head to Stillwater.
“I’m excited about the opportunity with a very talented young quarterback returning and being around Coach Gundy,” Rattay said. “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.”
While Rattay takes over the QB coach portion of Gleason’s duties, there’s still the question of who will be calling plays for the Cowboys. There is plenty of speculation surrounding OSU wide receivers coach Kasey Dunn and possibly Todd Monken — who was OSU’s passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach from 2002-04 — returning to Stillwater after being the offensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns. With Rattay’s hire out of the way, it shouldn’t be too much longer now before we have an answer.
