Nathan Joel Coehoorn (born September 17, 1986)[1] is a former Canadian football wide receiver who played his entire professional career for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. After the 2010 CIS season, he was ranked as the seventh best player in the Canadian Football League’s Amateur Scouting Bureau rankings for players eligible in the 2011 CFL Draft, and third by players in the CIS.[2] Coming out of college his top assets were speed, aggression and good hands. He was drafted fifth overall in the draft by the Eskimos and signed with the team on May 31, 2011.[3] He played CIS football with the Calgary Dinos. On August 20, 2013 [4] his contract was extended through the 2015 CFL season.

Coehoorn played six season for the Eskimos, catching 211 passes for 2,376 yards with 6 touchdowns. He won the 103rd Grey Cup to conclude the 2015 season. On April 10, 2017, Coehoorn announced his retirement at the age of 30 via Instagram because of concussion related health concerns.[5]
