Former Browns Safety Jim Leonhard Now a DB Coach for Wisconsin

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Congratulations to former Cleveland Browns safety Jim Leonhard, who is now a defensive backs coach for the Wisconsin Badgers.

Leonhard only played for the Browns for one season -- his final one -- in 2014. He saw a lot of playing time in Mike Pettine's defense, so much to the point where I thought he was the MVP of the defense. He retired following the season, and I think his departure helped expose in 2015 just how many holes the Browns had on defense.

He attended Wisconsin in college, so a return to coach at the place he called home has to feel good. Fans at our SB Nation affiliate are pleased with the news too.
