Kelvin Sigler, a former head coach at Blount High School in Mobile, Ala. who spent the 2012 season as a member of the University of Alabama football staff, enters his third season as the Huskies’ cornerbacks coach in 2015.

NIU’s young cornerbacks have excelled in the Mid-American Conference under Sigler’s guidance. Veteran Paris Logan earned first team All-MAC honors a year ago while multiple true freshmen helped at NIU’s other cornerback spot. The Huskies intercepted 14 passes last season, including several key picks late in games by members of Sigler’s unit.

This followed the 2013 season which saw NIU tally 19 interceptions as a team, largely thanks to the play of Sigler’s cornerbacks.

A defensive back at Alabama from 1995-98, Sigler returned to his alma mater for the 2012 season as a defensive analyst for the national championship winning Crimson Tide.

He went to Alabama after four seasons as head coach at Blount High School in Mobile, Ala., where he compiled a 27-18 record and led the Leopards to four straight playoff berths. In 2011, Blount went 10-2 and advanced to the second round of the Class 6A Playoffs in Sigler’s final season as head coach to post the school’s first 10-win season since 1998.

Prior to taking over as head coach at Blount, Sigler served as defensive coordinator at Bob Jones High School in Madison, Ala. from 2004-08, and as an assistant coach and head track and field coach at Greensboro (Ala.) High School from 2002-04. Seven of Sigler’s high school defensive backs earned college football scholarships.

In four seasons as a defensive back at Alabama, Sigler made six career interceptions and led the team in tackles his junior season. He was selected as one of five permanent team captains in 1998.

Sigler and his wife Gemini have four children, Yessman, Aubre, Kelvin Jr. and Kelsie.
