Clemson reportedly set to lose key member of coaching staff to NFL

Finding a replacement shouldn't be too hard.

Clemson is already losing its greatest offensive assets to the NFL Draft in receiver Mike Williams and quarterback Deshaun Watson, but could be losing a secret weapon on defense according to FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman:

Hobby and Marrone actually have a history as well so the hire isn't totally out of the blue:

That potential move coupled with the fact that longtime defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks retired after the national title game could hurt the Tigers, but Feldman is convinced that it shouldn't be too hard to find someone who wants to coach some talented defensive tackles.

Hobby has been with the program since 2011 and had a short stint during the 2005 season as well. He played defensive end with the Patriots and Titans from 1986 to 1992 after starring at Tennessee. He also coached at Ole Miss and Duke along with the New Orleans Saints for a couple years in the mid-2000s.
