In the Bogota derby between Independiente Santa Fe and Millonarios on 23 September 2012, he received his 41st red card in a professional game, being sent off for the elbow and subsequent kick to the head aimed at Millonarios player Jhonny Ramirez. The offense also got him suspended for the next 15 matches. Bedoya has been sent off multiple times since.
Following his retirement from his club career, Bedoya went into coaching. In his first position as assistant manager, he was dismissed from the dugout after 21 minutes.
