Vaughan approaching win No. 250, is 300 possible?

Posted: Wednesday, October 7, 2015 9:40 am | Updated: 9:49 am, Wed Oct 7, 2015.

If Mountain Pointe continues to play at a high level, Pride coach Norris Vaughan will surpass the 250 career win milestone this season.

He entered the year with a career mark of 241-98-2 record dating back to about 1980 when he picked up a few wins as an interim coach in Georgia.

He sits at 247 after Thursday’s win in the Tukee Bowl, but insists winning 300 career games is something he is set on accomplishing.

“If I was at 299 and if felt like I couldn’t be effective anymore I’d quit,” he said. “I don’t plan on quitting anytime soon, but you never know. To do that would be six or seven more seasons. It’s possible.”

Considering the rate at which Vaughan has won (117-19 for an 86.02 winning percentage) since coming to Arizona, Vaughan could reach 300 in about four seasons or five if there is a little bit of a drop off one year.

“I never thought about winning 200 even,” he said of his early days in Georgia. “One hundred was a number that I thought was possible.”

Vaughan has coached six different programs with all of them being reclamation projections, never taking over a squad that won more than three games the year before he put his winning imprint on the program.
