As a player

As a coach

Sigurður last coached Keflavík in the Úrvalsdeild karla before stepping down for health reasons in October 2016.[3][4][5]

In 2009, Sigurður was hired as the head coach of Solna Vikings. He left after only two games due to a disagreement with the board regarding how to build up the team, claiming he was not happy with the boards insistence on adding more American players to ensure short term success.[6][7]

Personal life

Sigurður is the younger brother of Valur Ingimundarson, the highest scoring player in the Icelandic Úrvalsdeild history,[8][5] and the uncle of basketball player Valur Orri Valsson.[9]
