Guiton, who played with the Buckeyes from 2009 to 2013, joined the coaching ranks in 2015 as a graduate assistant at Houston under Tom Herman. He was initially set to follow Herman to Texas and be a quality control assistant, but he now has a gig as one of the Cougars’ main assistants.
Guiton played in 22 games during his Buckeyes career, serving as Braxton Miller’s backup for most of his time in Columbus. Guiton threw for 863 yards, 16 touchdowns and 4 interceptions at Ohio State.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer often noted that he thought Guiton would be a successful coach some day.
