Chris Shula is an American football coach who is the linebackers coach for the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League (NFL). Chris Shula enters his fifth season with the Rams in 2020, his first season as linebackers coach after serving as outside linebackers coach from 2019-20 and assistant linebackers coach in 2017-18.

Shula also assisted in a strong season from veteran LB Clay Matthews, who tallied 8.0 sacks in only 13 games played, his highest sack total since the 2014 season.

With the help of Shula, LB Cory Littleton put together a career year in his third pro campaign. His 125 tackles led the team and were tied-10th most in the NFL in 2018, in addition to posting the most passes defended (13) by any linebacker in the league.

In 2017, LBs Alec Ogletree and Mark Barron each posted over 100 tackles. Barron, a converted safety playing his first season in Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips’ system, posted a career-high and tied for a team-best three interceptions on the season.
