Pro football career
Bohannon signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League prior to the 1982 NFL Draft. He quickly became disenchanted with his situation in Toronto and asked the team for his release. His request was granted after the team's second exhibition game.
Shortly after leaving Toronto, Bohannon contacted the Pittsburgh Steelers who signed him. He was on the Steelers roster for seven games in the strike-shortened 1982 season. He was used primarily on special teams as a kickoff returner and in kick coverage. Bohannon was placed on the Steelers injured reserve list prior to the 1983 season due to a thigh injury and he never again played for the team.
After leaving football, Bohannon attended the police academy in Birmingham.
