According to multiple reports, Ladysmith, WI native and former Wisconsin Badgers defensive back and punt returner Jim Leonhard will be named Wisconsin’s defensive backs coach.

Both Rivals.com’s Jon McNamara and FootballScoop.com reported the move was coming, as former defensive backs coach Daronte Jones left the Badgers earlier this month for the Miami Dolphins.

Leonhard was a walk-on at Wisconsin who ended up being All Big-Ten three times and an All-American. He played professionally for the Bills, Ravens, Jets, Broncos, and Browns before retiring following the 2014 season.

Leonhard was inducted into the Wisconsin Athletics Hall of Fame in 2015.
