Not gonna happen

Rand is playing nice with McConnell in exchange for his support. Yes McConnell needs Paul more than Paul needs McConnell in terms of popular support to win his upcoming election, but Paul needs McConnell on his side if he is to continue to have the power he currently has in the senate. Paul is not going to get the Majority leader spot over McConnell unless McConnell offers it to him.

Paul would be stupid to lead an uprising against the man, as well, since he has shown Paul support. It would banish Paul into the "Does not play well with others" category that he is doing so well at avoiding well still breaking rank and successfully getting his ideas out to the populace.
