The New York Giants have hired former NC State defensive video graduate assistant Robbie Leonard as their new defensive quality control coach, replacing Al Holcomb, who was recently hired by the Carolina Panthers.

Prior to becoming the Wolfpack defensive graduate assistant, Leonard was a High School coach, having graduated from NC State in 2008 with a degree in Sports Management. During his time at NC State, Leonard played linebacker and was second on the team with 100 tackles in 2008.

Essentially, defensive quality control coach is an entry-level NFL position where Leonard will be used to scout the defense similarly to the way opposing coaches will.
