He was a two-time All-American linebacker at OSU, where in 1987 he was both team MVP and the Lombardi Award winner.

Chris and his late wife, Stefanie, created the Stefanie Spielman Fund for breast cancer research after her diagnosis in 1998. Chris skipped that season in the NFL to care for Stefanie, who passed away in the fall of 2009. Chris and Stefanie were the parents of four children. Chris also has two step-daughters with his wife, Carrie.
