Former Clemson defensive line coach Marion Hobby is returning to Clemson according to Duke head coach David Cutcliffe. Cutcliffe confirmed Saturday to the Durham Herald-Sun that after meeting Saturday morning with Hobby, his assistant head coach and defensive coordinator had decided to accept the Clemson offer to replace Chris Rumph on the defensive staff. Hobby coached the defensive line at Duke.
Hobby was an assistant on Tommy Bowden’s staff at Clemson in 2005. He left for the NFL but returned to college coaching by joining Cutcliffe’s staff at Ole Miss. He then followed Cutcliffe to Duke.
Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney still has two offensive positions to fill on his staff. He has told recruits he plans to have his offensive coordiantor’s slot filled by Sunday. He has interviewed Chad Morris of Tulsa and Justin Fuente of TCU for that job.
