In February 2010, Nate Shreffler, the longest-tenured coach on the Charger football staff, was named the team’s offensive coordinator. In addition to those responsibilities, he has continued in his role as offensive line coach. Throughout his nearly two-decade tenure with the Chargers, Shreffler has expertly coached his players with intelligence, depth and an understated excellence that makes him perfectly suited to coach the underrated, but essential group on the offensive line.
One of his own players, Drew Callahan, was selected as an honorable mention All-American following Hillsdale's championship season of 2018.
Shreffler played for the Chargers from 1989-1992, and helped Hillsdale win a league championship in 1992.
After receiving his degree in secondary education from Hillsdale, Shreffler coached junior high football in Glendale, Arizona. before returning to the college game.
He served two years coaching the offensive line at Olivet College, and one season at the University of St. Francis in Ft.Wayne, Indiana before returning to his alma mater.
In 2003, Shreffler helped guide First Team All-GLIAC lineman Silas Johnson to a spot in the Cactus Bowl, an all-star game for Division II players. Shreffler also coached 2009 All-American Jared Veldheer throughout his highly decorated career. Veldheer went on to become the 69th selection of the 2010 NFL draft and is the starting left tackle for the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals. In 2010, offensive lineman Phil Doerfler earned a host of awards, including First-Team All-GLIAC, the GLIAC Commissioner’s Award, the Jack McAvoy Award and the National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Award.
His recruiting focus is western, central, and southern Ohio.
