The Jacksonville Jaguars have finally hired a new linebackers coach, plucking quality control coach Robert Saleh from the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.

Saleh had spent the past three seasons as a quality control coach for the Seahawks. Saleh, 35, spent two seasons with Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley and defensive line coach Todd Wash, but prior to that had spent five seasons with the Houston Texans as a defensive assistant.

The Jaguars have also hired Scottie Hazelton as the new assistant linebackers coach, per O'Halloran. Hazelton has both played under and coached with Bradley at the collegiate level.

The Jaguars also replaced athletic trainer Mike Ryan, who decided to leave the NFL, with Scott Trulock. Trulock was previously at the University of North Carolina but has 11 years of experience between four NFL teams.
