Utah State football head coach Gary Andersen, along with junior center Tyler Larsen and senior safety McKade Brady, held a news conference Monday to open the 2012 season.
USU Athletics Director Scott Barnes, men's basketball sophomore guard Preston Medlin, football head coach Gary Andersen and USU President Stan Albrecht spoke at Wednesday's ground-breaking ceremony for the new Strength & Conditioning Center.
Evan Simon is in his fourth season as Utah State's strength and conditioning head coach.
Simon came to Utah State after three years at the University of Utah where he was the Utes' associate director of strength and conditioning. During his time at Utah, he assisted with the conditioning workouts for the football and men's basketball teams, as well as coordinating workouts for softball, women's basketball and women's track and field in addition to developing rehabilitation programs for football and softball.
Simon is familiar with the Utah State football coaching staff, re-uniting with Aggie head coach Gary Andersen, who also came to USU from Utah.
Prior to Utah, Simon was the head strength and conditioning coach at Davidson College from 2004-06, where he coordinated the strength programs for the Wildcats' 21 Division I sports.
Before his stint at Davidson, Simon was a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of Kentucky from 2002-04, working with the football, baseball, men's soccer, and volleyball teams.
A native of Lexington Park, Md., Simon earned his health and physical education bachelor's degree from Frostburg State (Md.) in 2002. Simon also earned a master's of science degree in exercise physiology from Kentucky in 2004.
Simon is married to the former Linda Kyte. The couple has one daughter, Abbi (4).
