Sigler Hired as Assistant Men's Golf Coach

Aug. 23, 2010

Jason Sigler, a former four-year letterman for the University of Kansas golf team, has been hired as UCLA's new assistant men's golf coach, Head Coach Derek Freeman announced on Monday.

Sigler, 27, has spent the last five years as an instructor for the Dave Pelz Golf School. For the last year, he has served as the lead instructor at the Pelz school's Atlanta location, where he has taught more than 1,000 students in one, two and three day seminars. Sigler opened and organized the school in Atlanta and consistently received high evaluations from students. Dave Pelz is considered one of the foremost short game experts and has tutored many golf professionals.

"We're excited to have Jason Sigler join the coaching staff at UCLA," said Freeman. "His instructional expertise as well as his collegiate experience will be very valuable in our pursuit of championships. In addition, Jason's motivation and excitement to be at UCLA will continue to provide our student-athletes with the atmosphere to become successful."

Sigler played at Kansas from 2003-06, where he won the 2004 Kansas City Amateur Championship. He was an All-Big XII Academic selection from 2004-06. He earned his degree in Sports Management from Kansas in 2006.

A 2001 FCWT First-Team All-American, Sigler played four years of golf at Immaculata High School in Leavenworth, KS, his hometown. In 2001 won the Tapetio Springs championship and was a participant in the Kansas State Amateur.

"I am truly humbled to join the UCLA family and it is an honor to be part of their commitment to excellence in academics and athletics," Sigler said. "I want to thank Coach Freeman for this opportunity. I look forward to meeting the players and being part of such a prestigious institution."
