Joe Jacoby is one of the best offensive lineman in a storied Redskins history, one of the original Hogs and a three-time Super Bowl winner. With a resume like that, it's natural Jacoby would end up in coaching. 

News emerged Wednesday that Jacoby will take over as offensive line coach at Concordia University Chicago, a Division III school. Prior to Concordia, Jacoby coached at D3 Shenandoah College in Winchester, Va.

"I am excited about returning to football once again and coaching it at the Division III level where the focus is truly on the love of the game," Jacoby said in a Concordia statement. "I really enjoyed talking with the kids and hearing them discuss why they chose Concordia-Chicago. Growing as football players and students were important, but also the desire to practice and grow in their faith - that was a big thing for me."

While Jacoby coached at Shenandoah, the team's offense made great strides, breaking eight team records.

"We are thrilled to have Joe Jacoby as the newest member of our coaching staff. It is very exciting to give our players such a tremendous opportunity to learn the game from someone with the history and reputation that Joe possesses," Concordia head coach Randy Awrey said. "He is an individual of high character and, as good of a football player and coach he is, Joe is even a better man."
