Coach Leipold would be the ideal and most realistic coaching candidate that UCLA offers in the future.
Leipold is known as being a hard-working recruiter, who can recruit the Midwest, he has experience as a head coach, and Kansas has improved by increases in wins since he took over the Jayhawk program.
His recruiting has improved every season and he has two four-star recruits currently committed to Kansas. He also had key Jayhawk players not hit the transfer portal and he convinced their star quarterback Jalon Daniels to come back for another season as well.
He made a public announcement that he is not entering the NFL draft and will play college football next season. Now, he says as a Jayhawk, he could follow Leipold to Westwood in this alternative universe.
Granted a lot must transpire to happen but many UCLA fans would love Leipold as the next head coach of UCLA if he truly wanted to leave Kansas.
