Jamie Cox was born in Burnie in Tasmania on 15 October 1969 and from a young age was breaking batting records. In high school, he broke the all-schools batting record for Australian school cricket, previously held by Bill Lawry. He made his first grade debut for Wynyard as a 15-year-old in 1984.

As a young player, Cox played Australian rules football for local side Wynyard, before being drafted to the Victorian Football League's Essendon Football Club in 1987. However, Cox never played a senior game with the Bombers, instead focusing on cricket.

In first grade cricket, Cox, with partner Dene Hills broke the Tasmanian first grade partnership record in his first season, and was immediately elevated to first-class cricket before his 18th birthday, in 1987.

Cox was expected to go from there to play for Australia and to captain Australia in Test cricket, however in Cox's first 5 seasons, in spite of mostly batting with Hills, Cox finished with a batting average under 30.

In 1992, at the age of 23, Jamie Cox had his first good season, where he averaged over 50, and from then on he averaged over 50 in 8 consecutive seasons, bringing his cumulative batting average up to nearly 50.

In 2001, Jamie Cox was playing county cricket for Somerset in England when the Australian tourists played.

At the end of the 2004 season with Somerset, Jamie Cox was dropped from the county team. He nearly retired, as Tasmania failed to select him. After playing the occasional game for the next season, he announced his retirement from first-class cricket in March 2006.

After Cricket

Cox was a cricket media analyst/journalist and Athlete Career and Education Consultant with the Tasmanian Institute of Sport.

After writing his "Postcards" series in various newspapers while playing, he has already appeared in both Australian and International print, including "Inside Cricket" magazine, and on ABC television broadcasts as a commentator.

In November 2006 he was regarded as a surprise choice to replace Allan Border as a selector of the national cricket team. He stepped down from this role in 2011.

Cox was Director of Cricket at the South Australian Cricket Association from mid-2008 until his sacking in 2014.

In December 2014 Cox was appointed as General Manager - Football Performance at AFL club St Kilda.
