LOGAN, Utah - Utah State Assistant Athletics Director for Equipment Mike Bair has announced the addition of James Bell as an assistant equipment manager.

Bell, who officially began his duties on Aug. 1, will primarily be working with men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball, cross country and track & field.

“After a year of job hunting and interviewing at colleges across the country, Utah State and the city of Logan is the perfect fit for me,” Bell said. “The beauty of the area, and a university that is making strides to stay competitive in NCAA athletics, has helped me feel at home very quickly, which I guess is appropriate, considering my parents met as students at Utah State University. I'm excited for this amazing opportunity.”

Bell joins the Aggies after having served as an intern and volunteer equipment manager at the University of Utah from March to July of this year. Prior to that, Bell was the interim director of equipment at Idaho State, where he also earned a master’s degree in athletic administration. He has also spent time in compliance, event operations and media relations before settling in equipment.

“We are excited about bringing James on board with our equipment staff,” Bair said. “James adds an additional dimension to the athletics equipment service that we offer and he will give the Olympic sports the attention that they need.”

The native of Placerville, Calif., majored in recreation leadership and minored in sports management at BYU-Idaho, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in July of 2013. He then went on to earn his master’s degree from Idaho State in December of 2015.
