In October 2019, he was the owner of the esports franchise Echo Fox until he departed from the franchise. In 2015, Fox and associate Amit Raizada acquired professional League of Legends team Gravity Gaming of the North American League of Legends Championship Series, re-branding it to Echo Fox.

In April 2019, Fox threatened to leave the esports team after accusing associate Amit Raizada of making racist comments against him and Echo Fox CEO Jace Hall, as well as threatening Fox’s family. In response, Riot Games, which operates the LCS, launched an investigation. It ordered Echo Fox to remove Raizada, or it would have to sell its spot in the LCS within 60 days, saying “hate speech, threats, and bigotry have no place in the LCS.” With Echo Fox unable to remove Raizada, Riot Games came up with an agreement to end Echo Fox’s participation in the LCS, eventually resulting in Evil Geniuses acquiring the team’s spot.

In September 2019, a lawsuit ousting Fox as a general partner was sent to him by several of his business partners, stating Fox had repeatedly worked against the best interests of the company. The letter sent had several signatures including: Vision Esports head Stratton Sclavos, investor Daniel Deshe, Raizada Group manager Ravi Srivastava and Khalid Jones, who was Fox’s partner in the general partnership. In response, Fox filed a lawsuit against Raizada and Sclavos alleging the two partners committed fraud, conspiracy, and breach of contract against him.
