Kim Cox  
Coach
Kim Cox is one of the most successful coaches in Washington. “With his ability to command the respect of the young men by making them better players and people, it’s no wonder why he is one of the most respected coaches,” says David Schmitz, President, Walla Walla Catholic Schools.

He is the sixth coach in Washington state high school baseball history to register 500 career wins, which he achieved in his 25th season of coaching at DeSales High School in Walla Walla. Cox has coached his baseball and football teams to 27 state championship games and has claimed 20 titles.

His baseball team won seven consecutive state titles on two different occasions (1992-98 and 2000-06). By the end of his career, Cox had earned 16 state baseball titles.

Cox also has impressive football numbers. From 1987-1992 his teams finished with a record of 45-13. In 1995 he became a co-head coach with Pat Graham, and in four years, ended with a 50-10 record. Three years later in 2002, Cox became a co-head coach again, this time with Mike Spiess, and finished with a 43-7 record. In his football coaching career he ended with a 138-30 record and four state titles.

Cox currently is an assistant baseball coach at Chiawana High School. Matthew Fazzari, one of Cox’s former players, states, “he will always have a place in my heart as someone I will call ‘Coach’.” Kim Cox continues to devote himself to making a difference in young people’s lives.
