Four years into his coaching career, Wisconsin defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard is already one of the top assistants in college football.
Leonhard, a Wisconsin native and former Badgers’ safety, joined Paul Chryst’s staff as defensive backs coach in 2016, two years after retiring from the NFL. He was elevated to defensive coordinator a year later and has led one of the best units in the Big Ten over his three seasons. If Leonhard is interested in a head-coaching opportunity, where might he land? Would he take a low-level Power Five job or wait comfortably in Madison?
This week on the High Motor podcast, Steven Lassan (Athlon Sports) and Andrew Doughty discuss Leonhard’s head-coaching stock.
