Former NFL player Cox joins Coastal staff as DBs coach

Former NFL veteran Curome Cox has joined the Coastal Carolina football staff, announced second year Chanticleer head coach Joe Moglia. Cox will coach the defensive backs as well as work with the special team units.

Cox comes to Coastal Carolina after three seasons (2010-12) as a graduate assistant at Maryland. While at Maryland, Cox assisted with the Terrapins’ defensive and special teams units. He also served as the junior college recruiter as well as on-campus liaison for potential student-athletes during official and unofficial visits.

Cox also spent time as an intern assistant coach as part of the NFL minority internship program with the Washington Redskins during July and August 2012. While with the Redskins, he contributed with the development and execution of practice elements and worked with the defensive secondary during film sessions.

The Arlington, Va., native spent five seasons in the NFL, playing for the Denver Broncos (2004-07) and Houston Texans (2007-09). While in Denver, Cox served on the special teams units, where he was a finalist for the 2006 AFC Special Team Player of the Year. He helped the Broncos to the AFC West title in 2005 and to the 2006 AFC Championship game. Once in Houston, Cox contributed on the special teams.

Cox played collegiately at Maryland where he earned All-ACC as well as All-ACC Academic honors in 2003. Cox, primarily a corner, ranks seventh on the Terps’ all-time list with 10 career interceptions returned for 153 yards. He helped lead Maryland to the 2002 Orange Bowl, 2002 Peach Bowl and the 2004 Gator Bowl. During his time in Maryland, the Terps tallied a 41-20 record and claimed the 2001 ACC Championship.

Cox graduated from Maryland in 2003 with a degree in family studies. He earned a master’s of arts degree in minority and urban education from Maryland in 2012.
