Guillot served as head coach of the Parkview Baptist football team for the last 15 years and continues to serve as the PBS athletic director, school officials said.

He began his coaching career in 1969 at Broadmoor High School as an assistant coach. He served as assistant coach at Tara High School beginning in 1972, winning a state championship in 1974. In 1979, he joined Woodlawn High School as the head football coach.

His next stop was as the offensive coordinator for Nicholls State University from 1981-86, then McNeese State University in 1987 as the offensive coordinator.

Guillot left the football world from 1990 to 1999 to manage a chemical supply company. After a nearly 10-year hiatus, Guillot returned to football in 1999 as Parkview’s head football coach. The 2013 season marked his 15th year at PBS.

While at Parkview, the team won nine district championships, four state championships and was state runner up in 2009. His record while at PBS is 164 wins and 31 losses.

Guillot’s teams made the playoffs 16 out of 17 years as a head coach and has made it to the quarterfinals or better 12 out of 16 years in high school football.
