Vaughn came to Nevada after a successful four-year run at Middle Tennessee State, where he was the coordinator of player personal.

A native of South Carolina, Vaughn is no stranger to Northern Nevada. He previously lived in Reno and helped coordinate a Velocity Sports Performance franchise while serving as the center director, handling business and recruiting functions. Vaughn helped Velocity develop and promote a special high-altitude performance and skills training program for elite NBA players and NFL hopefuls that was the first of its kind in the U.S.
Prior to that, Vaughn was on the staff at Clemson, where he served as an assistant for football operations, assisting in administrative operations, travel logistics, recruiting, and community relations. Vaughn also developed a high school relations program for the Tigers while serving as the team liaison for the 2005 Champs Sports Bowl.
Vaughn was also a member of the Clemson staff in 2003 as a recruiting assistant. During both tenures at Clemson, Vaughn helped the Tigers land nationally ranked top-25 recruiting classes.
Prior to joining the Clemson staff, Vaughn was a letterwinner at North Greenville University, where he played on the first bowl team in school history.
