So while looking over the Green Bay coaching staff, I found a familiar trend, much like the Arizona staff of a couple years ago. Great football starts in one place.

Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Head coach => born/grew up in Pittsburgh, Univ Pittsburgh Quarterback Coach 1989-1991, Univ Pittsburgh Wide Receiver Coach 1992

Tom Clements, Green Bay Quarterback Coach => Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Coach 2001-2004

Dom Capers, Green Bay Defensive Coordinator => Pittsburgh Steelers Defensive Coordinator 1992-1994

Kevin Greene, Green Bay Outside Linebackers Coach => Pittsburgh Steelers Linebacker 1993-1995

Darren Perry, Green Bay Safeties Coach => Pittsburgh Steelers Safety 19921998, Pittsburgh Steelers Asst Defensive Backs Coach 2003, Defensive Backs Coach 2004-2006

Scott McCurley, Green Bay Defensive Quality Control Coach => born 50mi from Pittsburgh, Univ Pittsburgh Linebacker

Shawn Slocum, Green Bay Special Teams Coach => Univ Pittsburgh Defense Coach 1990

It's not coincidence. Ted Thompson (GM) said when he appointed McCarthy that coming from Pittsburgh was an advantage. He likes you!

The city and surrounding area breeds champions.
