Chris began his coaching career by building a successful boys soccer program at Navarro High School in Austin ISD where he took over as Head Coach in 2015. The Varsity team qualified for the Playoffs in four consecutive seasons from 2017 to 2020 after a prolonged absence from the postseason. He was named the District Coach of the year in 2017 and 2019.
