OLE MISS COACH JOHN VAUGHT, DEAD AT 92

New, 13 comments

190-61-12 was his career record at Ole Miss. He won six SEC titles from 1947-1970. John Vaught died at 92 on Saturday at an assisted living facility in Oxford, Mississippi, an acolyte of Bear Bryant and an offensive tinkerer who brought shifts, the split-T, and sprint-outs into the offensive playbook.

We hate it when old guys die. R.I.P.

When coaches could wear hats: Vaught with Bryant in the '60s.
