Kenny Guiton continues to rise through the coaching ranks.

The former Ohio State quarterback is now the wide receivers coach at Arkansas, the Razorbacks announced Tuesday.

Guiton was previously the wide receivers coach at Colorado State, where he worked for one season. Before that, he was the wide receivers coach at Louisiana Tech in 2019 and at Houston in 2017-18. Guiton was briefly a quality control coach at Texas under Tom Herman, his former quarterbacks coach at Ohio State, but his new gig with the Razorbacks will be his first Power 5 job as a full-time assistant coach.

“Kenny G“ played for Ohio State from 2009-13. While he was never a full-time starting quarterback for the Buckeyes, he became a fan favorite nonetheless and famously came off the bench to lead Ohio State to a comeback win over Purdue in 2012. He later set a school record (which has since been matched by J.T. Barrett, Dwayne Haskins and most recently Justin Fields) by throwing six touchdown passes against Florida A&M in 2013, when he won two games as a starter and was a team captain.
