Fox played in the Teal Cup for Western Australia in 1986 and played 15 senior games for Perth in 1998 before he was drafted by Essendon with the 12th selection in the 1988 VFL Draft.[2] He didn't make his debut for Essendon until 1991, when he played 10 games[3] In the opening round of the 1992 season he was involved in an altercation with Tony Lockett, during which he was choked to near unconsciousness from a headlock.[4]

At the end of the 1992 season he was delisted by Essendon, but was re-signed by them in the 1993 Pre-season draft. However, he didn't play again for Essendon before he was again delisted and recruited by Richmond in the 1993 Mid-year draft.[5] He played four games for Richmond before again being delisted from the AFL for the final time.

He later played for the Gisborne Football Club.
