Karl Hobbs Biography

Karl Hobbs is the head coach of the George Washington University Colonials men's basketball team. He has won two Atlantic 10 Conference championships, and has led the Colonials to three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. Hobbs is known for his high-energy, frenetic coaching style.

On May 7, 2001, Hobbs was named the head coach at the George Washington University after previous coach Tom Penders resigned following a lack of success in Foggy Bottom. After completing his first two season just 24-33, Hobbs led the Colonials to a 18-12 record in 2004 and a bid to National Invitation Tournament. There they were defeated by the University of Virginia. In 2006, Hobbs was named the Atlantic 10 Conference Coach of the Year after leading the Colonials to their first undefeated conference regular season, the NCAA Tournament, and a 27-3 record in only his fifth year at the helm. Hobbs now holds a 1-3 record with GW in NCAA tournament games.

Hobbs won his first Atlantic 10 Conference Championship in 2005, the first in GW history, and then added the second in 2007 in Atlantic City. On January 3, 2007 he achieved his 100th win at the Smith Center over Fordham.

Hobbs is well known for his enthusiastic demeanor on the sidelines. He is known for his intensity, fast substitutions and frequent whistling and hollering. His teams are typically characterized by their frenetic, trapping defense which has led the Colonials to be one of the top teams in steals the past few seasons. Additionally, he tends to recruit stocky guards and pencil-thin, athletic forwards while coaching one of the quickest teams in the country.

Two of Hobbs's players at George Washington played in the NBA and a third was drafted in the second round in 2006. They are: Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Mike Hall, and J. R. Pinnock. Yet, after making it to the NCAA tournament the following season, Hobbs' squad missed the A-10 tournament for two consecutive years leading fans to call for his firing.
