In addition to his responsibilities as head softball coach, Coach Cox will assist with football, and serve as coordinator for the Glenbrook elementary sports program.

Regarding his attraction to Glenbrook, Coach Cox stated, “I was drawn to Glenbrook because of the success the program is having and the potential to build on it, not only in softball but across all sports. The strong support for the program and the commitment to achieving the ultimate goal of winning a State Championship greatly impressed me. I am excited to be a part of this journey at Glenbrook!”

Glenbrook will host a “Meet the Coach” event this Thursday, May 30th at 6:00 PM in the school cafeteria.  

All are welcome to attend and meet Coach Cox.”
