The NFL continues to have a high rate of head coaching turnover.
There are only nine coaches with five or more consecutive seasons on the same team.
While there seems to be a constantly revolving door of head coaches in the league, there is one area that many coaches seem to hail from.
There are now 4 head coaches—Arizona's Jonathan Gannon, Tennessee's Mike Vrabel, Vegas' Josh McDaniels and the Chargers' Brandon Staley—from Northeast Ohio. All under 50, and grew up within about 45 minutes of each other.
Great HS coaching in that area, which makes a difference.

Jonathan Gannon, Mike Vrabel, Josh McDaniels, and Brandon Staley are all from Northeast Ohio.
Does this region seem to breed better head coaching candidates?
Vrabel has made an incredible impact on the Tennessee Titans, as his team seems to respect him, finding success under him as well.
Staley has helped turn the Los Angeles Chargers into a playoff team, getting his head coaching career off to a great start.
The jury is still out on McDaniels, considering he has only coached the Las Vegas Raiders for one year.
And in terms of Gannon, he is freshly hired for the Arizona Cardinals.
His impact on the team certainly remains to be seen.
If he is anything like Vrabel or Staley, however, the Cardinals should be in great shape.
They have Kyler Murray under contract for the next few seasons, and as a whole, the Cardinals are on a track for immense growth.
Gannon comes to the Cardinals with 15 years of NFL coaching experience.
He has been with the Atlanta Falcons, Titans, Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, and Philadelphia Eagles in his career thus far.
With any luck, Gannon’s track record should serve him well with the Cardinals, helping turn the organization around.NEXT: 2 QBs Finish At The Top Among PFF's Highest Graded In 2022
