Hoffman joins the Green Terror staff as safeties coach in 2012, brining with him a lifelong experience and knowledge of football and sports, in general.
Playing the position since he was young, Hoffman was a two-year varsity starting quarterback in high school and was elected captain as a senior. He was named first-team all-county by the Washington Post and P.G. Journal.
He continued his signal-calling career in college that began with a year at the University of Maryland, where he was freshman quarterback. From there, he spent two years at Montgomery College as the starting quarterback, earning All-America, NJCAA and CAC Player of Year honors in 1984. He spent the following season as the starting quarterback at West Liberty State College and rounded out his career under center at Salisbury State in 1986, leading the Sea Gulls to a Division III runner-up finish.
Since college, Hoffman has been a physical education and health teacher in the Montgomery County Public School system. He has coached several sports during his tenure, including indoor and outdoor track and field, softball and golf.
He has also spent time coaching football along the way, including at Montgomery College (quarterbacks/assistant offensive coordinator, 1986), Paint Branch High School (special teams coordinator, 1989-90; offensive coordinator, 1991-92) and George Mason University (quarterbacks coach/assistant offensive coordinator/special teams coordinator/team conditioning and flexibility coordinator, 1992-94; offensive coordinator, 1994-95).
He most recently spent time the 1996 season as the quarterbacks coach with the Albany Firebirds of the Arena Football League with current McDaniel defensive coordinator Mike Dailey.
Hoffman took a hiatus from coaching in 1996 to spend more time with his wife, Lynn, and two young daughters, Amanda and Kelsey. Both of his daughters are now in college.
