Boise Native Returns to West to Join Aggies' Staff
Tighe recently graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. with a bachelor's degree in sport management. While at Liberty, he competed on their club gymnastics team, finishing fifth nationally on vault as a senior. He served as team captain, leading the Flames to a 17th-place finish of 58 teams at the national meet in Salt Lake City.
"I'm just really excited about it," Tighe said. "I love Logan. I really like the gymnastics team and the type of kids Utah State recruits. I'm excited to work with them."
A native of Boise, Idaho, Tighe also attended the University of Idaho, where he competed on the track and field team, participating in the pole vault. Outside of his own athletic pursuits, he served as a volunteer assistant coach for the UI diving team, as well as the tumbling coach for the cheer squad.
"I am excited for David to join our staff," head coach Jeff Richards said. "He has an exceptional knowledge of the sport of gymnastics and relates well to his athletes."
In 2009, Tighe transferred to Boise State University where he helped establish the BSU club gymnastics team while coaching at the Gem State Gymnastics Academy.
In his Junior Olympic competition career, Tighe was an eight-time Idaho state champion.
