Hobby leaves Duke for Clemson

Marion Hobby, who was Duke’s assistant head coach, defensive coordinator and defensive line coach, is leaving the Blue Devils to coach defensive ends at Clemson, according to a Clemson news release.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney also hired Chad Morris from Tulsa to be offensive coordinator, replacing Billy Napier. The appointments will be official after routine background checks are completed this week.

Hobby has spent the last three seasons at Duke under David Cutcliffe. Hobby coached under Cutcliffe at Mississippi from 1999 to 2004, and also served as defensive line coach at Clemson in 2005.
