Houston Reunion: Tom Herman Bringing Kenny Guiton On As Graduate Assistant

By 11W Staff on February 27, 2015 at 11:24 pm

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's going to make this work.

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.
