Steve Lutz Adds Jeremy Cox As Assistant Coach

May 6, 2024

Oklahoma State head coach Steve Lutz has hired veteran Jeremy Cox as assistant coach.

"I'm pleased that Jeremy and his wife, Cindy, will be joining us in Stillwater," Lutz said. "Jeremy is a friend, a family man and very well-respected throughout college basketball. He's won a national championship as a head coach and been an assistant at the highest levels. We'll benefit from his knowledge and more than 30 years of experience leading and mentoring young people."

Cox was the 2006 NJCAA National Coach of the Year after guiding Arkansas-Fort Smith to a title before transitioning to the Division I level as an assistant under Billy Gillispie, Doc Sadler, Stan Heath and former OSU assistant Kyle Keller. His 33-year resume includes stops in the Big 12, SEC, Big East and Big Ten conferences and a summer tour with USA Basketball. He's spent the past three seasons as Joe Golding's associate head coach at UTEP.

Over the years, Cox has worked with 16 players who went on to reach the NBA. He was the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches' 2017 Division I Assistant Coach of the Year while serving as associate head coach at Stephen F. Austin, and a 2020 Stadium survey identified him as the top assistant coach in the Southland Conference.

In addition to UTEP and SFA, Cox has been on staff at Southern Miss (2014-16), Texas Tech (2012-13), Nebraska (2011-12), South Florida (2009-11), Kentucky (2007-09), UTSA (1993-97) and Paris Junior College (1992-93).

Cox put together a 224-68 (.767) record in nine seasons as a head coach at College of Southern Idaho (2013-14), Arkansas-Fort Smith (2003-06), Garden City (Kan.) Community College (1998-02) and North Dakota State College of Science (1997-98).

The Wyoming native and 1991 Colorado Mesa graduate started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of Wyoming.
