Coach Moughon made his coaching debut in Mt. Pleasant, where he coached for seven years, with his team earning a state semi-finals berth in 1958. In 1962, John took a job at WHS and returned to his home town to coach football, basketball and baseball. He served with fellow Weatherford coaching legends Sammy Morrow and Bill Atchley, guiding the Roos to bi-district in 1964 and all the way to the state semi-finals in 1965. The ‘65 team was inducted into the WHS Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006.
After coaching in Weatherford for six years, John went into private business with his family, where he remained until he retired in 1995.
In 2010, John and his wife, Judy, received the Distinguished Service Award from the Weatherford Independent School District, where they were public school educators. Judy taught for 28 years in Mt. Pleasant and WISD.
