JAN 29, 2013 8:41a ET
Bush's NFL career has included stints as a player, scout, position coach and coordinator. He spent the last two seasons in Tennessee, and prior to his time with the Titans, Bush spent four seasons with the Houston Texans, including two as defensive coordinator.
"I'm extremely excited to add Frank to our staff," Fisher said. "Frank brings a wealth of experience and has a long history of success. Players respect him and our linebackers are going to enjoy playing for him."
With Bush as defensive coordinator in 2009, the Texans established new franchise lows for fewest points allowed per game (20.8) and yards allowed per game (324.9); in both 2009 and 2010, Houston yielded the two lowest rushing yardage totals in their franchise's history. His first two years with the Texans, Bush was the senior defensive assistant and worked primarily with the defensive line.
Before joining the Texans, Bush spent three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals as the linebackers coach and was tabbed as assistant head coach for his final year. The defense as a whole made significant strides during his tenure as they improved from 26th the year before his arrival in total defense to 12th in 2004 and 8th in 2005.
Bush spent nine seasons coaching on Mike Shanahan's Denver Broncos teams from 1995-03, in a variety of capacities. In his first five years (1995-99) in Denver, he was the linebackers coach. Additionally, he spent one season as secondary coach (2000) and three seasons as the special teams coach (2001-03) with the Broncos. In his time with Denver, Bush earned two Super Bowl rings (XXXII and XXXIII).
Bush started his coaching career with the Houston Oilers as the linebackers coach from 1992-94 and worked with Fisher during the latter two years of that stint.
Bush was a three-year starter at linebacker for North Carolina State and was a fifth-round selection of the Houston Oilers in the 1985 NFL Draft. He earned all-rookie honors in his first season before an injury in his second campaign ended his career as a player. Bush stayed with the Oilers following his retirement as a player, joining the front office as a college scout (1987-92).
