Incoming sprinters won't have to think back too far to remember the successes of new assistant coach Jarid Vaughan.
The former UT Arlington standout finished his stellar career as a multiple-time point-scorer in the Southland Conference Championships. Vaughan won an individual championship at the 2009 SLC Outdoor Championships in the 200m. He also placed second in the 100m behind current UTA standout Cordero Gray.
Vaughan also finished second in the 100m at the Texas Relays in 2009 and had a chance to compete nationally before suffering a major injury at the end of the season.
Overall, Vaughan scored seven times in individual events and numerous times as a part of relay teams.
In 2010, Vaughan took his talents to the national level when he placed third in the 200m at the Canadian National Championships.
Earlier in his career, Vaughan was named to Team British Columbia for the Canadian Games.
A 2010 graduate, Vaughan majored in kinesiology.
