Norris Vaughan is stepping down after nine seasons as the head football coach at Phoenix Mountain Pointe High School.

Vaughan, who led the Pride to a 99-19 record and a 2013 state championship, plans to move to Georgia to be closer to family, the school announced Wednesday.

"Not only is he one of the greatest high school coaches in Arizona history, he is an inspiring leader who cares for his players and wants them to be outstanding young men, on and off the football field. I can't thank him enough for the contributions he made to our entire school community,” Mountain Pointe principal Bruce Kipper said in a statement.

Vaughan is a three-time Arizona Coach of the Year winner who was selected to coach in the Army All-American Game and the Under Armour All-America Game.
