Kenny Guiton’s run in Austin with former Ohio State OC Tom Herman, the new head coach at Texas, appears to be a short one.

After the University of Houston dismissed their wide receivers coach, Guiton is going to replace him in the same role. This will mark Guiton’s first job as a full positional coach in the college ranks.

Guiton had been set to serve as an offensive quality control assistant, biding his time for a full positional opportunity and continuing to build coaching experience, at the University of Texas. He’d served in a variety of capacities as a graduate assistant for Herman prior when the two were at Houston.

This marks Guiton’s first non-NFL full time gig since his graduation from OSU. While never the Buckeyes’ starter, he famously led a come from behind late-in-game victory over Purdue while filling in for an injured Braxton Miller.

Best of luck Kenny G. Perhaps a coaching return to Columbus isn’t too far off in the future.
