Timothy John Rossovich (March 14, 1946 – December 6, 2018) was an American football linebacker and a television and movie actor, active from 1977 to 1998. He was the brother of actor Rick Rossovich.
Rossovich was born in Palo Alto, California. Tim is ranked 20th on the list of "greatest high school defensive football players of all time". After graduating high school he turned down a pitching position with the Pittsburgh Pirate because he wanted to play in the NFL one day. He played college football at the University of Southern California and was one of five USC Trojans players taken in the first round of the 1968 NFL Draft after his senior year. Rossovich played for the National Football League Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers, and Houston Oilers between 1968 and 1976. He played in the Pro Bowl in 1969.
In March 1974, he was selected by the Philadelphia Bell in the first round (3rd overall) of the WFL Pro Draft. He opted to sign with the Philadelphia Bell of the World Football League, where he played until the league folded midway through the 1975 season.
In 1977, Rossovich appeared in the episode "The Shortest Yard" of the ABC situation comedy The San Pedro Beach Bums.
Rossovich died due to respiratory arrest on December 6, 2018, in Grass Valley, California.
