The St. Louis Rams added a new defensive coach to the staff this week. Former Titans linebackers coach Frank Bush was hired by the Rams, according to Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean.
Bush was on the staff in Tennessee for the two previous seasons. His contract was not renewed by head coach Mike Munchak. Notable, Bush's time with the Titans came after Fisher's tenure there, which ended following the 2010 season. So much for the most obvious connection.
Like several other members of the Rams coaching staff, Bush has experience as a defensive coordinator. He was the DC for the Texans in 2009 and 2010, but was fired after that. Bush was the linebackers coach in Arizona from 2004 to 2006.
The Post-Dispatch reported Thursday morning that Bush was likely going to be the Rams' next linebackers coach, replacing Blake Williams who was fired earlier this month. Williams, according to that same PD piece, was passing out resumes in Mobile this week at the Senior Bowl.
