This past Friday in Lincolnton, Larry Campbell set a new milestone for excellence as he coached in his 400th game as Red Devil head coach and became the first coach to reach that mark in only 30 seasons.
400 games in 30 seasons - that means the Devils have averaged playing over 13 games per year. Consider that each team was guaranteed only 10 games in their season, plus any playoff games they earned. Under Campbell, the Devils have averaged better than 11 wins per year.
In the 400 games, Campbell's teams are an amazing 341-56-3, which means they have won over 85% of the time. And more than one third of the games ended with the opponent being shutout!
Over one fourth of the 400 games have been playoff games. The Devils' 83-18 record is outstanding, and represent the most playoff games in the 1990s.
