Newton native takes post at UMKC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Newton native Jerod Fox has been named athletic communications director at Missouri-Kansas City.

He spent the last two years there as a graduate assistant, serving last year as “the primary media contact for the men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, volleyball, golf and tennis teams.”

"I could not be more thrilled to have the opportunity to remain with Kansas City Athletics, where I've grown and learned as a professional," Fox said. "I would like to thank (Deputy Director of Athletics of External Relations) Curt Jacey and (Director of Athletics) Dr. Brandon Martin for seeing the work that I've put in and the vision I have. I'm excited to help lead the Roos into a bright future."

Fox holds a BA from Hastings College and a master’s degree from UMKC. He was director of social media at Hastings, where he also broadcasted basketball, volleyball, football and soccer.

He also worked six NAIA championships in volleyball and women’s basketball.

He played tennis at Hastings and served as a digital content assistant with the U.S. Tennis Association Missouri Valley District.

He is a volunteer with the Stephanie Waterman Foundation, “a non-profit organization which provides tennis opportunities for Kansas City's underserved population.”
