Edison's V. Lewis steps down

Edison football coach Vaughn Lewis, who led the Eagles to a Virginia AAA Division 5 title in 1986 and to Northern Region championship berths for five consecutive years from 2004 to 2008, has stepped down.

Edison’s is one of four coaching vacancies in the 30-school region. West Potomac Coach Eric Henderson also has resigned. Mount Vernon (Tom Glynn) and Jefferson (Tim Puvogel) also have been advertising for new coaches.

Lewis, 61, said his wife is retiring and that they plan to travel. He also likely will help his son, Chad, the head coach at Stafford.

“It was time,” said Lewis, who started coaching in Fairfax County in 1975. The Lewises have a home in Stafford County, where their seven grandchildren live.

Lewis had two stints with Edison, 1986-87 and from 1997 through this season. He also coached at Jefferson and at defunct Groveton.

During his second stint at Edison, the Eagles went 100-47, with 15 of those losses coming his first two seasons. Edison reached the playoffs in nine of Lewis’s final 10 seasons, with a region title and state championship appearance in 2006 and region-runner-up finishes in 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008. Edison went 7-4 this season.

Henderson stepped down after six seasons. His West Potomac teams compiled a 27-35 record, with one playoff berth, in 2007. The Wolverines won 17 of 21 games from the last four games of 2006 through the first five games of 2008.

Henderson also was head coach at T.C. Williams for two years.
