Coach Vaughn’s basketball success goes beyond womens’ basketball, as he is a member of NBA superstar Stephen Curry’s off-season skill training team, and has assisted in workouts with other high-level players such as NBA stars Luka Doncic and Trae Young. Coach Vaughn is also a camp coach at Curry’s invitation-only SC30 UA Select Camp for America's top high school boys and girls basketball players.
Prior to Diablo Valley College, Coach Vaughn spent almost 3 years as the Assistant Head Women’s Basketball Coach at NCAA Division II member Hawaii Pacific University. While at Hawaii Pacific, Coach Vaughn played an integral role in helping transform a team that had gone 2-25 in the season prior to his arrival to one that would go on to win a conference championship just 3 seasons later. While there, he recruited and helped develop several players who were named to the PAC West Conference All Conference teams.
As a player, Coach Vaughn prepped at San Francisco’s George Washington High School, where he was named Honorable Mention All SF Bay Area. He earned a basketball scholarship to Washington State University out of high school, but ended up transferring to San Francisco City College after his freshman year, where he helped his team get to the CCCAA Final Four. From San Francisco City College, Coach Vaughn then went on to play at Hawaii Pacific University. His basketball career then led him to play in Australia for a number of years.
Coach Vaughn earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Hawaii Pacific University; a Bachelor's Degree in Administration of Justice and a Master's Degree in Communication. He also holds a Master's Degree in Exercise Science from New Mexico Highlands University.
