New Tabor assistant will also run sports P.R.

Former Bethel College women’s basketball coach Mark Fox has been hired as assistant men’s basketball coach and sports information director at Tabor College.

Fox has nearly 30 years of experience in coaching, recruiting and teaching, including 11 seasons at Bethel and before that at Newman University in Wichita.

“He is a man who loves Jesus and lives his faith in ways that positively influence those around him,” Tabor’s vice president of enrollment and athletics, Rusty Allen, said in a release. “He is also a very talented professional.”

Fox will assist head coach Micah Ratzlaff.

“His years of experience and commitment to students are remarkable, and I look forward to the insight he brings to the program,” Ratzlaff said.

In addition to coaching and teaching, Fox will serve as sports information director.

“Coaches are always promoting team achievements, but as SID I will have the opportunity to learn another integral part of running an athletics department,” he said in a release. “I hope my enthusiasm for promoting Tabor athletics and student athletes helps elevate what is already an outstanding program.

“Coaching at a top program like Tabor is an exciting opportunity. I look forward to becoming a student again to see how Coach Ratzlaff and the team work together.”

Fox has a bachelor’s in education from the University of Kansas and a master’s in supervision and curriculum from Emporia State University.
