Fox named as new Women’s Basketball Head Coach at Penn State Abington

Penn State Abington Director of Athletics, Intramurals and Recreation Erin Foley has announced that Megan Fox will become the new head women’s basketball coach at Abington.  Fox joins the Abington family after serving as the head coach at Delaware Technical Community College.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Megan Fox to Penn State Abington as our new women’s basketball coach,” said Foley.  “She demonstrates a deep passion for the game, strong work ethic and commitment to the overall development of her student-athletes, both on the court and in the classroom.”
Fox was named the head coach at Delaware Tech in 2020 but due to the Covid-19 pandemic didn’t compete until this past season.  The team clinched a postseason berth for the first time under Fox’s leadership.
“I want to begin by giving a huge thank you to Erin Foley and her athletic department for trusting me to lead this phenomenal program and group of young ladies,” said Fox. “I am beyond grateful for all of the teams and student-athletes I have coached in the past six years which have helped prepare me to excel within this opportunity. I am looking forward to getting to work and I’m extremely happy to call Penn State Abington my new home!”
Prior to her arrival at Delaware Tech, Fox spent three seasons as the Varsity Girls Basketball Coach at Seaford High School in Delaware.  In just one year the team’s record improved from 2-17 to 10-10.  The .500 record marked the best in over five years for the school. Fox also served as an assistant coach at Wesley College in 2015.   
During her playing career, Fox played two seasons at Wilmington University, before transferring to Arcadia University where she finished her collegiate career.  During her senior season, Fox participated in the MAC Senior All-Star game.  She averaged 10.9 points and 5.4 rebounds per game during her senior campaign.  In high school, Fox was a first team all-conference player for Woodbury and lettered as a member of the track & field team.
Fox graduated from Arcadia with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and went on to earn her Masters of Special Education (M.S.E.) from Wilmington.  Fox currently works as a special education math teacher at Kipp Lanning Square Middle School in New Jersey.
