The Washington Redskins announced Tim Rattay as their new quarterbacks coach Friday.
Rattay, an eight-year NFL veteran with three teams, has several years of coaching experience, but never at the NFL level. He comes to Washington from Louisiana Tech where he coached quarterbacks for the last four seasons after spending three seasons coaching wide receivers at the school. Rattay began his coaching career in the United Football League with the Las Vegas Locomotives after spending two seasons as the team's quarterback.

Rattay was a QB under Jay (and Jon) Gruden in Tampa for a year in 2006.His coaching career has been in college so far, but now he makes the leap to quite the uncertain QB situation with the #Redskins.

He will replace Kevin O'Connell, who the Redskins promoted from passing game coordinator and QBs coach to offensive coordinator in January. The team named Matt Cavanaugh, the offensive coordinator the past two seasons, Senior Offensive Assistant.

Rattay is the fifth new face to join head coach Jay Gruden's coaching staff this offseason following Nate Kaczor (special teams coordinator), Ray Horton (defensive backs), Brian Angelichio (tight ends), and Rob Ryan (inside linebackers).
