Houston Vs. Louisiana Tech: Tony Levine Endorses New Offensive Play-Caller Travis Bush

New Houston Cougars offensive play-caller Travis Bush has the endorsement of head coach Tony Levine, something now-ex-offensive coordinator Mike Nesbitt apparently didn't have.

Nesbitt resigned following the Cougars' anemic offensive performance in last weekend's embarrassing 30-13 loss to Texas State to open the 2012 season. Bush was named the new play-caller shortly after.

"He and I are on the same page," Levine told the Houston Chronicle. "Our philosophy is exactly the same."

The Chronicle report mentions the use of running back Charles Sims as one of the key philosophical differences between Levine and Nesbitt. It's safe to say fans can expect to see the back featured more than the 14 touches Sims got against Texas State.

Bush, who also coaches the quarterbacks, was the offensive coordinator at Texas-San Antonio last season.
