Guiton will reunite with Wisconsin head coach Luke Fickell, who was Ohio State’s head coach in 2011.

Guiton has spent the past three seasons with the Arkansas program in the same role.

He first began as a graduate assistant in 2015 with Houston shortly after wrapping up his playing career at Ohio State following the 2013 season.

Guiton then moved into a quality control coaching role at Texas under Tom Herman in 2017. From there he grew into a larger coaching role and returned to Houston as he was named wide receivers coach for the Cougars from 2017-18.
