One of the most beloved back-up quarterbacks in the history of the Ohio State football program is following Tom Herman to Houston.
Kenny Guiton, who played in Columbus from 2009-13, will be a graduate assistant on the Cougars’ staff this year. Herman, who spent three seasons as the Buckeyes’ offensive coordinator, became Houston’s head coach this offseason.
The former 6-foot-3, 207-pound quarterback will be coaching the wide receivers, according to his Instagram account.
Guiton, a Houston native, started multiple games during the 2013 season while Braxton Miller was injured. He also led a memorable comeback victory against Purdue in 2012 while Miller was sidelined.
Urban Meyer, Herman and several other coaches on the Ohio State lauded Guiton’s football intelligence during his time in Columbus. The former back-up quarterback seems to have a very bright career ahead of him in coaching.
