As we near the end of the FootballScoop salary series, linebackers coaching salaries proved among the most difficult to find. Every staff has a linebackers coach — many have two — but the majority also serve as defensive coordinator.

As always: salaries based on publicly-available data, primarily from the USA Today salary database.
