Two years ago, Arkansas kicker Vito Calvaruso left Fayetteville to join the Wisconsin Badgers. Now, it looks like Razorback wide receivers coach Kenny Guiton is going to follow the same path northward.

On Tuesday evening, reports broke that Guiton will leave the Arkansas football program after three seasons to take the same job with the Badgers under Luke Fickell.

No doubt, a lot of the players loved him. That came across loud and clear in the aftermath of this season’s Florida win, when he had to moonlight as offensive coordinator and received a warm embrace by KJ Jefferson in the stadium tunnel as the team cheered around them.

The love also came across in the live Instagram video on Tuesday evening where Razorback wide receivers Davion Dozier, Andrew Armstrong and Isaiah Sategna openly grieved Kenny Guiton’s departure, with Sategna going so far as to say he would not be a Razorback were it not for the 32-year-old.

Indeed, coming out of high school, Sategna rejected two schools – Texas A&M and Oregon – to eventually land with the Hogs.

Dozier, who just finished his freshman season, shared similar sentiments. “I’m so sick right now,” Dozier said. “He came to my house, bro. He came to talk to my momma, bro. He’s the reason why I came up (here).”

One of the group chimed in that after the departure, “it’s really fixin’ to be a ghost town now,” insinuating perhaps more exiting transfers would occur.
