      Hopefully having a double digit 1st half lead will be an advantage in the 2021 season.

        Gruden apparently saw something in Bradley's Chargers' tenure that I missed.

          So that’s 2 wins against the raiders next season. If chargers are down only by 20 , they can pull it off.

            JIM LEONHARD
            • TITLE Defensive Coordinator - DBs

            In just four seasons on Wisconsin’s coaching staff, Jim Leonhard has managed to further elevate a defense that has become one of the nation’s best, year in and year out.

            He is in his fourth year as defensive coordinator, and fifth on staff overall, in 2020.

            Few could be considered more knowledgeable about having success on defense at Wisconsin than Leonhard, a 2015 inductee to the UW Athletic Hall of Fame who was one of the most successful players to ever patrol the Badgers’ defensive backfield.

            Following his retirement from a 10-year career in the NFL, Leonhard joined the Badgers’ staff as defensive backs coach in 2016. He became defensive coordinator less than a year later and went on to be named a finalist for the Broyles Award, presented to the nation’s top assistant coach, in his first season running UW’s defense.

            With Leonhard on staff, Wisconsin’s defense has quite simply been one of the nation’s most complete and high-performing units.



            Over his first four seasons, the Badgers ranked third in scoring defense (17.2 points per game), fourth in total yards allowed (297.9 yards per game), fifth in rushing defense (112.3 ypg) and fifth in pass efficiency defense (109.0). Wisconsin forced the second-most turnovers of any FBS team during that span, with 104, and the Badgers’ 68 interceptions also ranked No. 2 nationally.

            In 2019, Leonhard’s unit posted four shutouts — the first Big Ten team to do so since 1962 — and set a school record by allowing opponents to convert just 27.2% of their third-down attempts. Led by 12.5 from consensus All-America outside linebacker Zack Baun and 11.5 from All-Big Ten inside linebacker Chris Orr, the Badgers smashed the school record with 51 sacks on the season.

            In its first year under Leonhard’s direction in 2017, the Badgers’ defense ranked second nationally in total yards allowed (262.1 ypg), third in scoring defense (13.9 ppg), third in rushing defense (98.4 ypg) and No. 1 in pass efficiency defense (96.4).

            Led by the Leonhard-coached secondary, UW gave up just 11 touchdowns through the air, picked off 20 passes and was one of only four FBS teams to hold opposing teams under a 50 percent completion rate. With a school-record 75 breakups to go along with their 20 interceptions, the Badgers led the nation with 95 passes defended.

            Cornerback Nick Nelson, a consensus first-team All-Big Ten selection and second-team All-America pick, led the way with a school-record 21 pass breakups. Remarkably, 10 players recorded at least one interception for the Badgers — led by four apiece from senior safety Joe Ferguson and junior linebacker T.J. Edwards — with a school-record five picks returned for touchdowns.

            Edwards and junior safety D’Cota Dixon joined Nelson as first-team All-Big Ten picks, leading the way for an impressive list of 11 players who earned all-conference recognition for their efforts on the Badgers’ league-leading defense.

            Key to the Badgers racking up a school-record 13 wins, including a victory in the Orange Bowl, UW’s defense allowed just 18 touchdowns in 14 games.

            Leonhard’s impact on the Badgers’ secondary was immediate in 2016. His unit was instrumental in the Badgers grabbing 22 interceptions, a total that ranked second in the FBS and marked UW’s highest output since 2002, when Leonhard himself recorded a school-record 11 of UW’s 22 picks.

            The secondary contributed to an overall effort that saw the Badgers finish ranked No. 4 nationally in scoring defense (15.6 ppg), No. 7 in total defense (301.4 ypg), No. 3 in rushing defense (98.8 ypg) and No. 10 in pass efficiency defense (106.9).

            Under Leonhard’s tutelage, senior cornerback Sojourn Shelton was named first-team All-Big Ten for a season in which he recorded four interceptions and 12 pass breakups. Senior safety Leo Musso, the Badgers’ MVP, finished with a team-high five picks, while fellow safety Dixon grabbed four and Tindal had three at corner.

                As much as I am happy to see Bradley go at the same time I know we are dealing with the Chargers here... if you know what I mean.

                In the other hand Gruden knows very well the Chargers.. both as an opponent and in the inside.. he seems to be pretty close to the Spanoses....

                  Gus was a good friend of Lynn is how he got hired by the Chargers imo. So excited for the future now with Herbert and a new head coach with 2 new coordinators.

                    Though I have suggested Wade Phillips because he is so good - I would like a DC coordinator that other teams would want to promote to HC. I think in Pep Hamilton - the Chargers have that as an OC

                    I think either Leonhard, nice resume, or a Kris Richard - would be names that in time, teams might want to be Head Coaches - that might be nice for a change.
