Theodore[1] J. "Ted" Cox (June 30, 1903 – November 5, 1989)[2] was an American football player and coach. He served as the head football coach at Tulane University from 1932 to 1935 and at Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College, now Oklahoma State University–Stillwater, from 1936 to 1937, compiling a career college football record of 35–33–2. Cox was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After playing as a tackle at the University of Minnesota from 1922 to 1924, he joined Tulane in 1927 as the coach of their first-year players. Cox was promoted to coaching Tulane's linemen in 1929, and became the head coach before the 1932 season.[2] He compiled a 28–10–2 record as head coach of the Green Wave. This included the 1934 team, which went 10–1, won a share of the Southeastern Conference championship and defeated the Temple Owls in the Sugar Bowl. In 1935, despite posting a winning record at 6–4, he was fired.[3][4] From 1936 to 1938, he coached at Oklahoma State, and compiled a 7–23 record.[5]
