Norris Vaughan has stepped down as Mountain Pointe’s football coach.

“We will be loaded next year and I wanted to leave the cupboard full,” Vaughan said on Wednesday.

He had an extremely successful run since coming to Arizona from Georgia, where he and his wife, Ellen, will be moving back to in the near future.

Vaughan started at Wickenburg and went 47-5 before coming to Mountain Pointe in 2009 where he built a power as the Pride had at least 10 wins and made the semifinals eight times in his nine years.

Mountain Pointe went 99-14 in his nine seasons and made three state title games, winning it all with an undefeated 14-0 season.

He had 125 wins in Georgia to give him a record 271-114-2 in his career, although he believes there are a couple as interim head coach job back in the 1980s.

“It was a great run,” said Vaughan, who said there is a possibility he will coach Georgia.

Before Vaughan arrived at Mountain Pointe, the Pride was 6-14 the previous two years. They went 12-1 in his first season after a culture change to kick start the best run in the program’s history.

Mountain Pointe had never been to a state title game, only making the semifinals once since 1991, before his arrival.

The Pride, who had four 10-0 regular seasons under Vaughan, made the championship game in 2012 before losing to Hamilton, won it all in 2013 by beating Hamilton and lost to Chandler in 2016.

“We have family in Georgia and it’s the right time to return,” Vaughan said.
