Kenny Guiton, a former Ohio State quarterback, is joining Tom Herman's staff at Texas as a wide receivers quality control coach.
Guiton spent two years as a player under Herman with the Buckeyes, and the Houston native took a grad assistant position when Herman became the Cougars head coach.
Back in May, our Andrew Holleran spoke to Kenny Guiton about his career, and touched on how he got involved with Tom Herman at Houston:
CS: You obviously played for Herman at Ohio State. How’d you link up with him for the graduate assistant position at Houston?
KG: I actually saw him at the national championship game (in 2015, when Ohio State beat Oregon). I went to the (team) hotel before the game to say good luck to the boys and to the team. By that time, it had been announced that he would be going to the University of Houston. He knows I’m from Houston and so, when I saw him, he was like, ‘Hey man, you gonna give me a call in this next week?’ And I’m like, ‘heck yeah.’ So I said I’ll be calling you and when I called him, he told me to come meet the coaches and from then on, I was in, full on ready to go.
The expansion of support staffs is a major trend right now among college football's elite programs, and clearly Tom Herman is looking to ramp things up in that regard at Texas.
