Nathan Pennypacker Stauffer (January 1, 1875 – June 6, 1959) was an early American football coach in the United States. He was one of the first head coaches at a small school to be paid for his work.[4]

Coaching history

Dickinson College

Stauffer was the first head football coach for the Dickinson College Red Devils[5] in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and he held that position for missing seasons, from 1896 until 1899.[6] His overall coaching record at Dickinson was 22 wins, 11 losses, and 2 ties. As of completion of the 2007 season, this ranks him sixth at Dickinson in terms of total wins and fourth at Dickinson in terms of winning percentage.[7]

Dickinson College played football as far back as 1885, but no official coach was kept on record.

Widener University

After Dickinson, Stauffer became the head coach at Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania for the 1900 and 1901 seasons. His record at Widener was a successful 7–3 season his first year, and a disappointing 3–5 season in 1901.[8]

University of Mississippi

Stauffer served as the head coach at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) in Oxford, Mississippi for the 1909, 1910 and 1911 seasons. His record at Ole Miss was 17 wins, 7 losses and 2 ties (17–7–2).[9]
