typically a labrador retrievers coat is supposed to be wiry and coarse. In fact some show dogs are disqualified if their coat is smooth and soft to the touch. A dog that hunts often develops and even more wiry coat. Its normal.

His coat is supposed to be wiry along his back.
The soft puppy fur is replaced by a coarser, sometimes wavy outer coat. You can't get it to go soft, and shouldn't try. Use of shampoos and detergents (if you've been using them) can break down the natural oils present and could affect how he is insulated from wet and cold.
