In 1965, Boghosian was interviewed for the Oklahoma Sooners head coaching job, but the university hired Jim Mackenzie instead.

Boghosian was offered the Oregon State head coaching job in 1984, but turned it down. The Raiders fell to 5–10 in 1987 and Boghosian was one of five assistants let go by the team.
