Andy Fox enters his fifth season on the staff and his first as the director of basketball operations after spending the past four years as an assistant coach at Tulane.
Fox came to Tulane with head coach Ed Conroy after spending four seasons with Conroy at The Citadel.
While at The Citadel, Fox played an integral role in the development and recruitment of several all-SoCon honorees and mid-major all-Americans Demetrius Nelson, Cameron Wells, and John Brown. These players helped lead The Citadel to its most successful stretch in program history.
Prior to his arrival at The Citadel, the Iowa native served as a graduate assistant for Bruce Pearl at the University of Tennessee, where he helped the Volunteers capture the SEC East Championship in 2006, earn a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and sign a top-five recruiting class nationally.
Fox broke into coaching during the 2004-05 season as a graduate assistant for Buzz Peterson at Tennessee (Conroy was also a member of the Tennessee staff in 2004-2005). At Tennessee, Fox's responsibilities included general correspondence with recruits, maintaining the recruiting database, opponent scouting, on-campus recruiting, video operations, coordination of summer camps, student-athlete academic support and various administrative duties.
Fox completed his master's in sports psychology from Tennessee's Sports Studies program in May 2006. He earned his bachelor's degree in 2004 in economics/business and fitness from Cornell College (Iowa), where he played basketball for four years. During his junior season, he led the Rams to their second best record in the last 40 years of basketball at the school. Fox was a two-year captain, earned IIAC All-Conference honors in 2004, and finished his career second all-time in assists in school history.
Fox brings extensive camp and youth league experience to the Tulane staff. From 2002 to 2004, Fox spent his summers working basketball camps around the country. His experience working as a counselor includes serving on the camp staffs at Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisville, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Northern Iowa, Snow Valley and also at the legendary Morgan Wootten camp.
Originally from Bettendorf, Iowa, Fox attended Davenport Assumption High School where he first met Conroy in the summer of 1999 as a camper at a basketball camp run by Conroy, an Assumption alum. A 2000 graduate of Assumption, Fox was a member of back-to-back Iowa Class 3A state championship basketball teams his junior and senior years. The Knights went 45-5 in Fox's junior and senior seasons. In addition he was recognized as the U.S. Marine Corps Athlete of the Year as a high school senior.
