Former Minnesota State Moorhead linebacker Aaron Bohl will start his football coaching career with the Wyoming Cowboys next month, and as one Minnesota-North Dakota website said, “Aaron’s father will be his boss.”

Aaron Bohl will be a defensive graduate assistant, and he said that he looked at other coaching options while consulting with his father, Craig, but this job was suddenly the most attractive. There were similar positions in the FCS and Division II before this spot opened at Wyoming. Aaron and his father decided the timing was right to work together.

Of course, Aaron said his father will hold him accountable like any other coach on staff.

Aaron was a four-year starter for MSUM at linebacker, where head coach Steve Laqua had some compliments. "He's got a great perspective on the profession given his lineage. ... He was always asking deeper questions on culture and how to run a program."

Since childhood, Aaron has wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps. One story retold often lately, is from his mother, Deanna Bohl, who recently recalled to him one of his show-and-tell items in school. When living in Lincoln, Nebraska, he brought the Nebraska defensive playbook. (Craig is a former defensive coordinator and assistant coach at Nebraska.)

Aaron's goal is to one day be a college head coach.

Meanwhile, we’ll just hope Coach Craig doesn’t overcompensate on holding Aaron as accountable as the others and just get tougher on his son.

Go Pokes!
