LOGAN, Utah - Utah State Vice President and Director of Athletics John Hartwell has announced the hiring of David Land as the Director of Olympic Sport Strength and Conditioning. Land is joining the Aggies after four years in a similar capacity at Murray State.
Land worked with the Racers’ men’s basketball team on a daily basis, but also worked with other teams in helping them to Ohio Valley Conference championships in women’s tennis (2014, 2015), women’s golf (2015, 2017) and men’s basketball (2015).
“I’m excited to get the Aggies moving, competing for championships and at the national level from day one,” Land said. “I’m ready to get started.”
Land has also worked with North Carolina Wilmington, East Tennessee State, Milligan College and North Carolina State. Land is a Raleigh, N.C. native, and earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science, with a minor in nutrition, at Appalachian State in 2011, and then a master’s degree in sports performance at East Tennessee State in 2013.
Land is certified through the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).
