Grant Rohach (born February 5, 1994) is an American football quarterback who is currently a free agent. Rohach played college football for the Iowa State Cyclones and Buffalo Bulls.

Early yearsEdit

Rohach attended Moorpark High School in Moorpark, California.[1] He committed to Iowa State to play for coach Paul Rhoads.

College careerEdit

Iowa StateEdit

Rohach was redshirted as a freshman in 2012. For the 2013 season, he served as the primary backup quarterback to Cyclones starting quarterback Sam Richardson,[2] starting the final four games of the season against TCU,[3] Oklahoma, Kansas, and West Virginia,[4] recording wins over the Jayhawks and Mountaineers.[5][6][7][8][9][10] For the 2014 season, Rohach again served as the backup to Richardson,[11][12][13] making one start on the season against Kansas. Rohach again served as the backup quarterback,[14][15] but did not play at all during the 2015 season, leading to speculation that he would seek a transfer to another school in search of more playing time.[16] On December 1, 2015, Rohach announced that he would transfer.[17][18][19]

BuffaloEdit

In December 2015, Rohach announced that he was transferring to Buffalo to play for coach Lance Leipold.[20][21] As a graduate senior transfer, he was able to play immediately for the Bulls. Rohach was named Buffalo's starting quarterback to start the 2016 season.[22] After a season-opening loss to Albany,[23] Rohach was benched in favor of redshirt freshman Tyree Jackson. He made one more start, against Bowling Green in the final game of the season,[24] following an injury to Jackson.

Professional careerEdit

On October 5, 2017, Rohach signed with the Iowa Barnstormers.
