Leonhard joined Paul Chryst’s staff as defensive backs coach at Wisconsin in February 2016. In his year off between retiring from the NFL and being named defesnive backs coach for the Badgers, Leonhard studied college film with then-Wisconsin Defensive Coordinator Dave Aranda and.
Leonhard became the Badgers’ new defensive coordinator in February 2017, replacing Justin Wilcox, who became California’s head coach. Late in November 2017, Leonhard was named a finalist for the Broyles Award, which recognizes college football’s top assistant coach.
Leonhard would go on to have six extremely successful seasons as the Badgers’ defensive coordinator (2017-2022). Currently, Leonhard is a senior football analyst at the University of Illinois. Jim Leonhard took an interview with the Philadelphia Eagles for the defensive coordinator position back in February of this year, but he decided to stay in college.
The Green Bay Packers should be looking to make a change sooner rather than later at the defensive coordinator position. Leonhard could be the guy.
