Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores has hired Robbie Leonard as his linebackers coach. Here’s what you need to know about Leonard:
▪ Years coaching in NFL: 6.
▪ Previous stops (and titles): New York Giants (outside linebackers coach, 2018; defensive assistant coach, 2013-2017).
▪ Quick thoughts: Like most of Flores’ staff, Leonard is a relatively fresh face in the NFL coaching scene. He only has one year as a position coach under his belt so far after serving as a defensive assistant for five years to get his foot in the door. Before that, Leonard was a graduate assistant at North Carolina State. He was a walk-on linebacker for the Wolfpack before earning a scholarship after his freshman year.
