Mobley came The University of Tulsa as assistant women's golf coach prior to the 2007-08 campaign.

At Tulsa, Mobley has helped coach the Hurricane to eight tournament championships, two Conference USA titles, four NCAA Regional appearances and one NCAA Championships finals appearance in the 2008 campaign. In year one, the Hurricane captured four team titles, the 2008 Conference USA Championship and returned to the NCAA Championships.
