College and amateur
Schuler attended college at Creighton University. During his time there he won awards such as MVP at the US Youth Soccer National Championships in July 2006, Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year, NSCAA Second-Team All-America and NSCAA All-Midwest Region First-Team.
He made his professional debut on June 2, 2010, in a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup game against D.C. United. Schuler joined USSF Division 2 club AC St Louis on July 20, 2010 for a four game loan deal, returning to Salt Lake before the end of the 2010 MLS season.
Schuler scored his first professional goal on April 9, 2011, in a game against the New England Revolution.
On November 8, 2013, Schuler scored what proved to be the series winner for RSL during the second leg of the 2013 Western Conference Semifinals versus the LA Galaxy, making the aggregate 2-1.
Once a promising player, Schuler could never stay healthy enough after 2014 to contribute enough to justify a role with the club. Real Salt Lake opted out of renewing Chris Schuler's contract as of November 30, 2015.
