Prior to his stint at Pittsburgh, Cox spent seven years as an Assistant Principal at his alma mater, St. John's Preparatory High School, in Washington, D.C. His many duties at St. John's Prep from 1999-2006 included oversight of the school's athletic department, supervision of all extra-curricular activities and serving as school disciplinarian. Prior to his tenure at St. John's, Cox also coached at Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington D.C. from 1996-99. One of his former players was Georgetown alum Ruben Boumjte-Boumjte.

He served seven years as an assistant coach with the Washington D.C. Assault AAU program where he helped guide the team to the 2004 Under-16 national championship. In assisting D.C. Assault head coach Curtis Malone, several of his players earned college scholarships including Tre Kelley (South Carolina), Chris McCray (Maryland), James White (Florida, Cincinnati), Tony Bethel (Georgetown, N.C. State) and Amari Israel (Notre Dame).

As a collegiate basketball player, Cox lettered four seasons at William & Mary for head coaches Chuck Swenson and Charlie Woollum. A three-year starter at point guard from 1992-95, Cox concluded his career with 670 points (6.1 ppg), 216 rebounds, 336 assists and a .352 3-point field goal percentage (139-395). He remains ranked among school leaders in several statistical categories including career assists (eighth, 336), career assist average (ninth, 3.08 apg.), career 3-point field goal percentage (ninth, .352), career 3-point field goals made (sixth, 137), season 3-point field goals made (sixth, 57) and owns two of the school's top-10 best season assists totals. His career-high 12 assists against George Mason in 1995 still ranks third among all-time game performances in William & Mary basketball history.

Cox graduated from William & Mary in 1995 with a sociology degree and later earned his Master's in Education in 1996.
