The Wisconsin Badgers have found their new wide receivers coach, as they’re set to hire Arkansas wideouts coach Kenny Guiton to the same role, according to FootballScoop.

Guiton will replace former wide receivers coach Mike Brown, who departed for the same role at Notre Dame after just one season on the staff.

Guiton has a connection to head coach Luke Fickell as the former played quarterback at Ohio State from 2009-2013 while the latter was the co-defensive coordinator and, briefly, interim head coach at the program.

Since finishing his playing career, Guiton has coached with the Houston Cougars as a wide receivers coach before moving to Louisiana, Colorado State, and most recently, Arkansas, under the same role.

Guiton was the interim offensive coordinator for the Razorbacks for a portion of 2023 after the program fired Dan Enos, but he will reportedly now join Luke Fickell and the Badgers staff as their next receivers coach.

At Wisconsin, Guiton will take over a receiving core that returns top wideouts Will Pauling and Bryson Green, while overseeing a plethora of young talent.
