Cox is a former linebacker who spent 12 seasons in the league, notching 51.5 sacks over his career. He began his coaching career in 2006 with the New York Jets, serving as the assistant defensive line coach  for three seasons.

He served as the defensive line coach for the Cleveland Browns in 2009 before moving on to the Miami Dolphins in 2011.

Cox spent the last two seasons as a defensive assistant for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
