Chris Fox is a retired American soccer defender who played professionally in the National Professional Soccer League and USL First Division.

Fox attended Brown University where he was a 1995 First Team All Ivy soccer player. After graduating from Brown, Fox signed with the New York Fever of the A-League. The Fever waived Fox in August 1996 and the Atlanta Ruckus immediately signed him.[1] In addition to his outdoor career, Fox also played indoor soccer. In January 1995, the Buffalo Blizzard selected Fox in the fourth round of the National Professional Soccer League amateur draft.[2] He signed with the Blizzard in 1996.[3] On February 6, 1998, the Blizzard released Fox to allow him to pursue a possible contract with the Dallas Burn.[4] By then he was also playing for the Richmond Kickers of the USISL. He signed with the Kickers in April 1997 and played for them through the 2005 season.[5] In 2001, he was First Team All League.[6] In February 1, 1998, the Dallas Burn selected Fox in the first round (tenth overall) of the 1998 MLS Supplemental Draft, but was released during the pre-season.
