In his third season with the Golden Hurricane, Brent Guy serves as The University of Tulsa's Defensive Coordinator and Linebackers Coach. He was named to the position on January 21, 2011, and is in his 28th year in the collegiate coaching profession.

In 2012, the Tulsa defense led Conference USA in total defense (47.8 ypg) and was second in rushing defense (119.6), pass efficiency defense (119.8) and scoring defense (23.6). The Hurricane defense ranked third in the nation for quarterback sacks, fifth for tackles for lost yardage, 16th for rushing defense and 25th for total defense.

Tulsa's defense collected 53 sacks for -356 yards and 110 TFLs for -504 yards in 14 games during the 2012 campaign.

Before coming to Tulsa, Guy spent one season as the linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator at UNLV. Before that, he was the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Louisville for the 2009 season. Prior to his stint at Louisville, Guy spent four seasons as head coach of Utah State (2005-08) and produced 14 players that earned first or second-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors.

Guy went to Utah State from Arizona State where he was the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach for four years (2001-04). In 2002, the Sun Devils' defense was ranked 27th nationally against the run and in 2004 finished the season ranked 28th in run defense, 32nd in pass efficiency and 48th in both total and scoring defense. ASU went 9-3 in 2004 and defeated Purdue in the Sun Bowl, marking the Sun Devils' second bowl appearance in three years.

Before moving to Tempe, Guy was the defensive coordinator at Boise State from 1998-2000, helping the Broncos capture Big West Conference championships in 1999 and 2000. The Broncos went on to win consecutive Humanitarian Bowls after those seasons.

Under his guidance, Boise State led the Big West in total defense, rushing defense and scoring defense in both 1999 and 2000. In 1999, the Broncos ranked 28th in the nation in scoring defense allowing just 20.5 points per game.

Guy, who has now been a part of 11 post-season bowl teams in his playing and coaching career, had two stints coaching at his alma mater of Oklahoma State. After serving as a graduate assistant (1986-87) and recruiting coordinator (1988) there, Guy coached the Cowboy linebackers from 1989-91 and then again from 1995-97.

During his first stint at Utah State in 1992-94, working with the linebackers, the Aggies won a Big West Conference Championship and posted the only bowl victory in school history, winning the 1993 Las Vegas Bowl, 42-33, against Ball State.

Guy began his playing career at Oklahoma State as a walk-on athlete in 1979. He started four games as a junior and was a starting linebacker in his senior season of 1982, when he totaled 106 tackles. Guy graduated from OSU with a degree in hotel and restaurant administration in 1983.

He and his wife, Shawn, have two children: Madison and Riley.
