Fox, an extremely successful coach at Nevada, has guided the Wolfpack to the NCAAs three times, including First Round wins in 2005 and 2007. His career record is 123-43. His teams have finished in first place or in a tie for first place in all but of his seasons - and that season the Wolfpack finished second.
Before Nevada Fox spent time at Washington and Kansas State as an assistant coach. Fox and his wife, Cindy, have two children: a son, Parker (8), and a daughter, Olivia (6). Cindy is the Executive Associate Athletics Director/Sport Support for the Wolf Pack athletics department.
Nevada gave Fox a contract extension after the 2007 season to 2014, but the contract did not include a raise for the head coach at the time. His contact at Nevada is worth $500,000 per year according to published reports. According to The Associated Press there is a clause requiring Fox to pay the university $250,000 if he quits before July 2011 - it is unclear if this is the buyout amount or if that is for Fox strictly quitting Nevada and staying out of coaching.
