PBR mourns the loss of Kent Cox


In This Article

The PBR is saddened to hear of the passing of Kent Cox. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cox family.

The Floyd County, Texas, native was a professional bull rider until an injury cut his career short in 1995. In recent years, he’s become known as a world-renowned bull handler.

He began working with cattle in 1998, the same year he met Julio Moreno. Cox started working with Moreno’s younger bulls, including Charlie Bullware in 2005, and his career handling and hauling bulls began to flourish two years later with Troubadour.

Cox has raised, handled and hauled two-time and reigning World Champion Bull Bushwacker for his entire history-making career on the Built Ford Tough Series.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
