After his college career. Chris took his talent to Canada and played for the Ottawa Roughriders during the 1985 and 1986 seasons. He would finish his professional career with 11 interceptions. In 1989, Indiana Football Hall of Fame Coach Bob Clayton convinced Sigler to return to Heritage Hills to coach football. During his 31 years at Heritage Hills, Sigler coached the secondary on defense and spent tie coaching receivers and running backs on offense. He served as the defensive coordinator for many of those years. Chris was an invaluable resource on Friday nights. He was a coach who could see things happen on the field and immediately process what adjustments to make and what information to send down to the sideline. During Coach Sigler's time at Heritage Hills, the Patriots won 13 Sectionals, 10 Regionals, 3 Semi-States (2000, 2004 and 2019) and 1 State Championship (2000). For 31 years, Coach Sigler brought knowledge and passion to the practice and game fields. Many players left Heritage Hills with a real understanding of how to play the game with physicality and energy. Coach Sigler (as a player and as a coach) played a tremendous role in the success of the Heritage Hills High School football program.
