Clemson's Marion Hobby Officially Hired As Jaguars DL Coach

The Jaguars announced on Wednesday night that Clemson co-defensive coordinator will be the next defensive line coach.

After reports earlier in the week that Clemson co-defensive coordinator Marion Hobby would be making the leap to the NFL, the Jaguars officially announced on Wednesday night that he would be hired on as the defensive line coach.

Tom Coughlin, VP of football operations for the Jags said in an official statement:

“Marion Hobby is an excellent coach who breeds success and comes from a winning culture. In recent years, Marion has overseen the development of top-tier players who are currently experiencing success at the highest level in the National Football League. His coaching prowess and ability to maximize his players’ abilities will bode very well for our organization.”

Hobby joined Clemson for a second time in 2011, and helped coach multiple All-Americans and several players that would go on to see careers in the NFL. The Tigers' defense ranked in the top 10 the last three seasons.

The Jaguars ranked No. 6 in the NFL in yards per game (321.7), but No. 25 in points per game (25.0).
