Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney moved quickly to fill the vacancy created when Chris Rumph left for Alabama on Tuesday. According to several sources Marion Hobby has decided to return to Clemson.
Nothing official will be announced until the hiring process is completed. That includes background checks, finalizing contract details and other processes that must be completed before an annoucement will come.
Hobby leaves Duke where he served as a co-defensive coordinator to return to the Tigers where he coached in 2006.
Marion left the Tigers for the NFL where he coached the defensive line for New Orleans Saints for two seasons. Hobby joined Duke after leaving the Saints.
Prior to coaching at Clemson Hobby spent six years at Ole Miss. Hobby played college football at Tennessee and played in the NFL for the New England Patriots for three seasons.
