Kenny Guiton is reuniting with Tom Herman in Houston as a graduate assistant. If you listen closely, you can hear the sound of smooth jazz all the way from Columbus.
For over a year now, there have been rumors about where Kenny Guiton, Buckeye quarterback extraordinaire, would get his start in coaching. The answer: the University of Houston, alongside new head coach (and former Ohio State offensive coordinator) Tom Herman.
Via Kirk Barton, Guiton's Instagram profile lists his new role as a wide receivers graduate assistant at UH. Houston's wide receivers coach, Drew Mehringer, retweeted it as well, so it's safe to say it's legitimate.
Guiton, who was a backup quarterback for the Buckeyes for most of his career, started several games in relief of Braxton Miller in 2012 and was a steady hand in 2013. It's a cliche that the backup quarterback is the most popular man on campus, but Guiton really was that well-liked. When he said that he wanted to coach, it was only a matter of time until he found an entry with Tom Herman at Houston.
