Boghosian became a member of Russell's coaching staff in 1957 and remained their until 1965 when he joined fellow UCLA assistant Tommy Prothro at Oregon State. Boghosian remained at OSU until 1975 when he joined the Houston Oilers coaching staff. In 1965, Boghosian was interviewed for the Oklahoma Sooners head coaching job, but the university hired Jim Mackenzie instead.[1]

In 1976, he joined the expansion Seattle Seahawks as the team's first offensive line coach. Boghosian left coaching in 1978 to focus on business,[2]

From 1979-1987, Boghosian was the offensive line coach for the Los Angeles Raiders. He would help coach the Raiders to two Super Bowls (XV, XVIII). Boghosian was offered the Oregon State head coaching job in 1984, but turned it down.[3] The Raiders fell to 5-10 in 1987 and Boghosian was one of five assistants let go by the team.[4]
