Returning home to the Midwest, Rohrman brings his extensive experience as both a coach and player to the Wisconsin mens soccer program. He spent seven years as the top assistant coach at nationally-respected Maryland before taking the reins of the Badgers in 2002. During his tenure at Maryland, the Terrapins made six NCAA appearances and made it to the Final Four in 1998.
Rohrman played for two seasons at Bethany Lutheran, a two-year private college at that time, and was an All-America selection and MVP as a sophomore. He played his final two years at UW-Milwaukee where he earned MVP and all-state honors as a Panther.
Following his collegiate career, he participated in the 1986 U.S. Olympic Festival in Houston and played professionally for the Milwaukee Wave (1986-87) and Real Santa Barbara (1989). He was also on the Minnesota mens state team that won the 1990 national amateur championship.
He is a member of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and the U.S. Coaches Organization. He earned his National A Coaching license from the U.S. Soccer Federation in January of 1999.
Rohrman received his bachelor of science degree in biological sciences from UW-Milwaukee in 1986 and a masters degree in sport administration from Mankato State (now Minnesota State) in 1991. Rohrman and his wife Nancy have two children, Danielle and Nicholas, and live in Verona, Wis.
