He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Nebraska (1982). Bohl was the linebackers coach at Nebraska for eight years. The final three seasons at Nebraska also included the defensive coordinator duties. His seasons at Nebraska included a number of Top 10 defensive national rankings for a team that compiled an 85-18 record including national championships with a Fiesta Bowl win in 1995 and an Orange Bowl win 1997.
