▪ Notable players coached: Calais Campbell, Will Smith.
▪ Quick thoughts: Hobby, a former third-round pick in the 1990 draft out of Tennessee, spent three years in the league as a player before shifting to coaching. He has spent most of his coaching career in the college ranks, highlighted by three years as defensive coordinator at Duke and six as the co-defensive coordinator at Clemson. He also coached the defensive line at both of those stops. The Jaguars’ defensive line was one of the best during Hobby’s first year in Jacksonville in 2017, with four players having at least eight sacks each, led by Calais Campbell’s 14.
