Coaching Staff

Dwayne Shaffer Head Coach

Dwayne Shaffer begins his 19th year as head coach of the UC Davis men's soccer team. Shaffer has guided the program to consistent success and achievement both on and off the field. Under his leadership, UC Davis has experienced two trips to the NCAA tournament and routinely competed against the top collegiate programs in the country.

Shaffer's career has been highlighted by recruiting and developing top student-athletes, as the veteran coach has seen two of his charges play in Major League Soccer, three receive All-America recognition and eight earn Academic All-America or all-district honors. Additionally, he has produced 17 all-region choices and 12 first team all-conference selections.

Chris Leer Assistant Coach

Former UC Davis letter winner Chris Leer joins the staff as an assistant coach for his first season beginning with the 2014 season.

"I am happy to bring Chris back into our program," Head Coach Dwayne Shaffer said. "He has always expressed a desire to be a college soccer coach and, being a former Aggie, he should transition into our team very easily. Chris had an excellent work ethic as a player and I'm sure that will translate well into his duties as a coach here at UC Davis."

Jason Hotaling Assistant Coach

A veteran of the Aggie Soccer Field sidelines with a decade's worth of coaching experience, UC Davis Assistant Head Coach Jason Hotaling returns for his 11th season with the Aggies in 2015.

Elevated to his current position in April of 2014, Hotaling's duties include coordinating the program's recruiting efforts, team travel, and scouting, while also working on developing the UC Davis goalkeepers.

All of UC Davis Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants.
