Kenny Guiton is only 25, but he’s quickly rising in the coaching ranks.
In 2015, the former Ohio State quarterback joined former Buckeye offensive coordinator Tom Herman to Houston, where he became a grad assistant. In December 2016, Guiton followed Herman to join his staff at Texas.
On Friday, Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman and Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel reported that Guiton would become Houston’s wide receivers coach.
Houston then confirmed that report.

The former Buckeye quarterback spent two seasons on Tom Herman’s staff at Houston. He helped turn the Cougars into one of the top offenses in the country.
The news came on the same day that Houston parted ways with previous WR coach Darrell Wyatt.
Guiton played in 22 games in his Ohio State career — primarily as a backup — and threw for 893 yards and 16 touchdowns.
At 25, Guiton is one of the youngest full-time assistants in FBS.
