Former Brigham Young University quarterback Robbie Bosco has been appointed as a full-time assistant offensive coach for the Cougars, the school said Saturday.
Bosco's appointment was announced by BYU Athletic Director Glen Tuckett."We are delighted to have Robbie join the football staff and provide for us his expertise on a full-time basis," said Tuckett. "In my opinion, Robbie Bosco represents all that is good in college football."
Bosco's appointment fills a vacancy on the BYU staff created when 19-year coach Mel Olson transferred to an academic counselor-teaching slot.
Bosco, from Roseville, Calif., started at quarterback during the 1984 season when BYU won the national championship, finished with a 13-0 record and led the nation in passing.
Bosco was drafted by the Green Bay Packers, but his pro career cut short by an arm injury.
Bosco served last season as a graduate assistant at BYU and is completing work on his master's degree in physical education.
