Hester new head strength coach, Cox to serve as Dir. of Football Ops
Head football coach Skip Holtz announced that Justin Cox has joined the Louisiana Tech Family as the Director of Football Operations in June 2013.
Cox was named the Director of Football Operations after a three-month tenure as a volunteer in the operations department at Louisiana Tech under Skip Holtz. During that brief time, he helped in film input and daily practice organization along with assisting in the daily operations during the spring season, tasks he will continue with in his new position.
"After serving in a volunteer role for the last three months, I am excited that Justin will now have a full-time position on our staff," Holtz said. "I have been very impressed with his organization, knowledge and efficiency in that short time period. He is the type of person that is going to do an outstanding job in this position and I expect him to have a seamless transition into that role having already been around the program."
Before joining the Louisiana Tech Family, Cox served as an assistant coach at Lake Howell (Fla.) High School, where he was the wide receivers coach in 2012 and the running backs coach and special teams coordinator in 2011.
Cox also served as a defensive assistant at Colonial (Fla.) High School in Orlando, Fla. while he was pursuing a Master's Degree in sport and fitness administration at Central Florida, which he received in 2011. He received his Bachelor's of Science degree from Coastal Carolina in 2007.
