Baylor head women's golf coach Sylvia Ferdon announced Wednesday the hiring of Jordan Cox as the Bears' new assistant golf coach.
"I am very excited to be able to add someone of Jordan's caliber," Ferdon said. "Jordan is very familiar with the Waco area and will be a great asset to our program in both recruiting and player development."
Cox, a '86 graduate of Baylor, comes 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 Arkansas Class 3A State Championships last season and fourth in 2006.
The Waco native has worked in a variety of professional positions over the past 25 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. Cox is also a certified instructor for the HOT Golf Academy in Texas.
Cox was the voice of the Lady Bears during the early and mid `90's. As an award-winning television sports anchor, Cox worked for many years at KWTX, the CBS affiliate in Waco.
He earned his degree from Baylor in radio, television and film. Cox and his wife, the former Kristy Berryhill, have two children: Jordan Lee, 14, and Ryley, 10.
