Brian Bohannon is in his sixth year as wide receivers coach at the Naval Academy.
Bohannon is part of a staff that has brought the Midshipmen back into the national spotlight with a 35-15 (.700) record over the last four years and has helped lead Navy to a school-record four-straight bowl games and a school-record four-consecutive Commander-In-Chief's Trophies. The 35 wins are the second most in school history over a four year span.
Bohannon has done an excellent job of developing Navy's wide receiver corps, both as blockers and receivers.
In 2005, Bohannon was part of a staff that helped the Mids rushing attack average a nation's best 318.7 yards per contest as Navy went to a bowl game for a third-straight year, won a second-straight bowl game and won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for a third-straight year.
In 2004, Bohannon's efforts helped the wide receiver corps to perform well enough for the Midshipmen to finish 45th in the country in total offense (388.8 yards per game), third in rushing offense (289.5), win a school-record tying 10 games (the most wins since 1905), win the Emerald Bowl and claim the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy.
In 2003, he helped the Mids lead the nation in rushing (323.2 yards per contest) and set school records for rushing yards per game, total rushing yards (4,202), rushing yards per attempt (5.5), rushing touchdowns (44), total offense (5,506), total offense per game (423.5) and yards per play (6.0).
In 2002, Navy had the third-best rushing average in the country (270.75) and scored 30 or more points on four occasions.
Bohannon coached the wide receivers for three seasons at Georgia Southern before taking over the defensive backs his last-two seasons.
During his initial season as defensive backs coach, the secondary played a key role in Georgia Southern's efforts, ranking 18th nationally in pass defense (156.1 yards per game) and 28th in interceptions (16). The Eagles' secondary took another leap forward in 2001, finishing second nationally in pass defense (125.6 yards per game), fourth in scoring defense (12.0 points per game) and sixth in total defense (261.4 yards per game).
A four-year letterwinner and standout as a wide receiver at Georgia, Bohannon started his coaching career at West Georgia before earning his first full-time position at Gardner-Webb (N.C.) as wide receivers coach in 1996.
A native of Griffin, Ga., he earned his bachelor's degree in general business from Georgia in 1993 and a master's in business education from West Georgia in 1996. He is married to the former Melanie Cobb and they have two sons, Blake Patrick (4) and Braden Thomas (3). The couple is expecting their third child and first daughter on July 23, Brooke Anna.
