It’s good to be Clemson co-defensive coordinator/defensive ends coach Marion Hobby right now, as he’s just over a week removed from a national championship against a seemingly unbeatable Alabama team. Unsurprisingly, all of that success comes with national recognition, and in football, recognition leads to job offers. According to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News, the former University of Tennessee defensive lineman is giving strong consideration to leaving his post on Dabo Swinney’s staff to take a job with the Jacksonville Jaguars:

As is the case with many coaches, Hobby has had a nomadic career since his playing days ended with the New England Patriots in the early 90’s. The former first-team All-SEC selection under Johnny Majors has coached at his alma mater (1998), as well as a longer stint as Ole Miss’ defensive line coach (1999-2004). He’s been with Clemson in his current role since 2011.
