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.

“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.
