In five seasons at Central Connecticut, Rossomando has compiled a 23-34 record, but he endured some growing pains through the first three years of his tenure. In 2017, he guided the Blue Devils to an FCS playoff appearance after an 8-3 season and a 6-0 mark in the Northeast Conference.
Prior to taking over at Central Connecticut, Rossomando was the head coach at New Haven, a Division II program. There, he went 42-13 in five seasons and led his teams to two playoff appearances, and two double-digit win campaigns.
Overall, Rossomando is 65-47 as a head coach.
Rossomando played offensive line at Boston University in the early 1990s. Rutgers would be his first FBS coaching job in any capacity.
