Wisconsin Football: Jim Leonhard is staying, according to reports

What a whirlwind season, but things may have worked out as best as they possibly could if the reports out there are true. Yes, folks, it appears that interim head coach Jim Leonhard is going to be staying in Madison as part of Luke Fickell’s staff. Additionally, it appears that Leonhard will be the defensive coordinator for Fickell. Obviously, we’ll have to wait until official word from UW officials, and things can change, but it appears that Leonhard will be back.

Jim Leonhard, who played four seasons at UW and has been a member of the coaching staff for seven seasons, has decided his heart remains in Madison.
