Craig Philip Bohl (born July 27, 1958) is an American football coach and former player. He is currently the head coach at defending back-to-back FCS champion North Dakota State University, a position he has held since 2003. As a player, Bohl was a reserve defensive back for the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 1977 to 1980. He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in 1982. Bohl was hired as the 32nd North Dakota State Bison football head coach in 2003. In 2011, Bohl led the Bison to their first ever FCS Championship title by beating Sam Houston State 17-6. On January 1st, 2013, NDSU gave Bohl an 8 year contract extension through the 2020 season, and four days later, he rewarded them by leading the Bison to their second consecutive FCS Championship by again beating Sam Houston State 39-13.[1]
