Fox joined head coach Bob McKillop’s staff at Davidson in 2001 and helped the Wildcats through perhaps the most successful 13-year stint in the program’s celebrated history. With Fox on the bench, Davidson compiled a 288-131 overall record (.687 winning percentage), 10 SoCon regular-season championships and six SoCon Tournament titles. He helped lead the Wildcats to the postseason in 10 of his 13 campaigns, including NCAA Tournament appearances in 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2012 and 2013. Davidson advanced to the Elite Eight of the 2008 NCAA Tournament with wins over Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin and came within two points of upsetting eventual national-champion Kansas for a berth in the Final Four.
Strong recruiting and player development have been staples of Fox’s college coaching career with student-athletes that he coached at Davidson earning all-America honors five times and all-conference accolades on 29 occasions. He also coached the SoCon Player of the Year seven times and mentored three SoCon Freshmen of the Year.
His most notable pupil was two-time All-American Stephen Curry, who played at Davidson from 2006-09. Curry was the nation’s leading scorer and a consensus first-team All-American in his final collegiate season and is currently an NBA All-Star for the Golden State Warriors. Fox also coached De’Mon Brooks, who earned honorable-mention All-America recognition in 2012 and 2014.
Coach Fox is a great leader that knows how to connect with his players both on and off the court. He knows the game, puts the time in to make himself better and will get the most out of each player he coaches. He is a guy that I keep in touch with to this day because of how much he pushed me on the court and also genuinely cared about me. App State is getting a gem.”
