Billy Joe Hobert (born January 8, 1971 in Puyallup, Washington) is a former professional American football quarterback. While at the University of Washington, he led the Huskies to a national championship in 1991, during his redshirt sophomore season. He was elevated to the starting position after junior Mark Brunell suffered a season-ending injury during spring drills.

The following season, he came under investigation for taking out a loan with the understanding that he would repay it once his NFL career began. This would ultimately lead to Hobert's expulsion from the team in November, and ultimately the resignation of head coach Don James the following August in protest over the severity of the penalties, a two-year probation.

Hobert was the 58th pick in the 1993 NFL Draft, selected by the Los Angeles Raiders, 60 picks ahead of teammate Mark Brunell. Hobert was the third quarterback selected in the draft, behind the top two overall picks, Drew Bledsoe and Rick Mirer. Hobert was a back-up quarterback for four seasons with the Raiders, then went on to play for the Buffalo Bills in 1997. After a notorious incident in Buffalo where he publicly admitted that he was unprepared to play, he was promptly released. He was acquired later that season by the New Orleans Saints, where he remained until 1999. The Saints traded him in 2000 to the Indianapolis Colts. While on the Colts roster for two years, he did not play a snap during the regular season.
