Towards the end of the 2002 season, the resignation of incumbent coach Terry Wallace led to Rohde being made caretaker coach for the final round clash with Collingwood at the MCG which the Bulldogs won. However, after being given the position of full-time coach for 2003, the Bulldogs finished last and in 2004 struggled again and finished 14th. He was eventually sacked. He is currently a part of the Football Department (as Football Operations Manager) at the Port Adelaide Football Club. He has three children, Matthew, Ashleigh and Ella, and is married to Robyn.
