HOUSTON – Travis Bush has been named the University of Houston’s Offensive Coordinator, head coach Tony Levine announced Friday. Currently wrapping up his second year at UH, Bush spent the 2013 season as the program’s Co-Offensive Coordinator and Assistant Head Coach. Bush will oversee the team’s quarterbacks.
Houston’s upcoming bowl game will not mark the first game with Bush as its play caller as the Portland, Texas, native started the 2012 season coaching the program’s running backs before taking over as the team’s play caller and quarterbacks coach early in the season.
“Having spent the past two seasons with Travis, including one as the primary play caller, I am extremely confident in his play-calling abilities and his commitment to the University of Houston,” said Levine. “His work last season, taking over after the season had started and improving our offense drastically, speaks for itself. He has an outside-the-box mentality and a creative football mind, and having been a part of this system for the past two seasons, I’m excited about the possibilities moving forward.”
Following the 2012 season that saw the Houston offense finish 15th nationally with an average of 479.6 yards per game and a passing game ranked 11th nationally at 328.4 yards per game with Bush as the program’s play caller in the season’s final 11 games, he was elevated to Co-Offensive Coordinator and Assistant Head Coach in January.
Prior to joining Houston, Bush spent the 2010-11 seasons as the offensive coordinator at UTSA, helping the first-year program average nearly 27 points a contest with a balanced offensive attack. The one-year stop came after six years at Texas State, including three as the Associate Head Coach and Co-Offensive Coordinator for a program that was among the national leaders in offense.
