A multi-purpose power forward
During his first two seasons with the club he only played international competitions, given that the local competition limited teams to only one American. A permanent fixture of the starting line-up under Lolo Sainz, in the 1978 European Cup final he played injured and contributed 10 points in the team’s 75-67 win over Varese. During his third season he swapped with Walter Szczerbiak, and played in the national League competition.
Coughran was a quick and strong power forward who had good movements with his back to the hoop. He was also an outstanding defender and scored with great ease from mid-range. His talent was clearly demonstrated in an ACB League game against Hospitalet, where he scored 50 points.
