Q&A with Will Cox, Defensive G.A. and Cornerbacks Coach

EMAP Nation, Help us welcome Will Cox to Greenville College! We are excited to have him join the staff! 

Tell us about your family and background.
I am the fourth out of five children. I was born in Texas but raised in rural Arkansas. I grew up in the church and having a relationships with Christ central to everything my family did. 

What is it about Greenville College and our football program that excites you and brings you here?
Greenville successfully marriages winning and creating men of character that go on to lead successful lives and are productive citizens, husbands, and fathers. I am incredibly excited to become apart of this. 

Why did you decide to get into coaching as a career?
Besides my own father some of the most influential men in my life were my coaches. Football teaches young men the importance of commitment, of teamwork, of drive, and most importantly how to respond to failure. These qualities and traits can become instilled in football. 

What about your experience at Highland High School and Concordia University would you like to bring to Greenville?
Probably the most important thing I have learned from Highland and Concordia is the importance of creating meaningful and lasting relationships with your players and fellow coaches. Greenville is very successful in creating lasting relationships. I hope to add to this and also learn from Greenville's success. 

What is your favorite memory of football as a player?
My favorite memory as a player winning conference as a junior in high school. Our high school had a tradition of winning but had fallen on hard times and had not had a winning season in five years. Winning conference and feeling as though all the extra time 
and extra work we put in made it all well worth it. 

What do you like to do in your free time?
Read or work out. 

Thanks Will for taking the time to answer these questions!
