Bulldog head football coach accepts position with MSU.

December 16, 2015

“I am excited to accept the opportunity from coach Jeff Choate to join his staff,” Robertson said. “It is truly honor to be a part of building the Bobcat football legacy.”

“I am forever indebted to Montana Western. I can’t thank the players, coaches, administration and staff enough for all their support.”  

In three seasons as head football coach at Montana Western, Robertson’s Bulldogs went 4-6, 6-4 and 7-3 including a third place conference finish this past season.  

Robertson is the third Montana Western alum to be hired by the Bobcats. New head coach Choate is a ’93 graduate of UMW and earlier this month Rocky Mountain head coach Brian Armstrong, a ’98 UMW grad, was named to the staff.   

“We wish all the best to BJ as he moves on to the Bobcats,” UMW athletic director Ryan Nourse said. “We’re grateful for the excellent program he has put together and we’ll begin immediately to find the right head coach to build on our successes.” 

Robertson who earned a Bachelor of Science in business education from Montana Western in 1998 was a running back on the 1994 Frontier Conference Champion team. He is also a member of the UMW Athletic Hall of Fame.
