Jordan Cox is in his third season as assistant coach with the Baylor women's golf program.

Alongside 17-year head coach Sylvia Ferdon, Cox has helped guide the women's golf program to back-to-back NCAA postseason appearances in 2009 and 2010. In 2009 and 2010, the women's golf program received a public recognition award from the NCAA Division I Academic Performance Program for having an Academic Progress Rates (APR) score which ranks among the top 10 percent within its sport.

Cox, a 1986 Baylor graduate, returned to Waco from Shiloh Christian School in Arkansas. In two seasons at Shiloh, Cox helped lead the Saints to two regional titles and one conference championship. The Saints placed third in the 2008 Arkansas Class 3A state championship and fourth in 2007.

His sincerity and encouraging personality have allowed the Waco native to become recognized as an outstanding recruiter and teacher. Cox was a certified instructor for the Heart of Texas Golf Academy where he was also a minority owner for a short time. The Academy serves over 300 junior golfers from around the area. Cox passed the Playing Ability Test for the P.G.A. of America program in 2004 before pursuing alternate golf interests. He has been a golf instructor since 2000.

He has worked in a variety of professional positions over the past 26 years including serving as sports pastor at several large Baptist churches in Texas and Arkansas during the last decade and also as the Vice President of Marketing-Communications for Upward Unlimited, a non-profit sports ministry organization.

As a play-by-play announcer, Cox was the first "Voice of the Lady Bears" during the early and mid 1990s. As an award-winning television sports anchor, Cox worked for many years at KWTX, the CBS affiliate in Waco. He also worked in radio and television in Colorado with the U.S. Air Force Academy.

He earned his degree from Baylor in radio, television and film. Cox and his wife, the former Kristy Berryhill (Baylor '89), have two children: Jordan Lee, 16, and Ryley, 12.
