He spent the 2002-2006 seasons in Natchitoches.
During his stay at NSU, Fobbs served an NFL Minority Internship with the Buffalo Bills in 2005 and also has coached the Arena League II Lafayette, La., franchise. He also worked as an offensive graduate assistant at Louisiana-Lafayette during the 2000-01 seasons.
