After working part-time during the 2013-2104 school year, Allen joins the Baylor faculty in earnest this fall, working as the Athletic Equipment Manager and serving as a dorm parent in Lupton Hall. The son of history teacher and coach Bill Cox, Allen spent the first seven years of his life on the Baylor campus while Bill was a dorm parent in Probasco and Lupton Halls.
Allen, of course, attended Baylor and graduated in 2009. While here, he played lacrosse and was a student manager for the football team under the late Phil Hibdon. Allen became an ice hockey fan, rare for Southerners, at an early age and chose to matriculate to Miami University of Ohio where he could serve as a student manager for the RedHawk hockey team. He graduated from MU with a B.A. in speech communication.
