    so....it looks like we will promote in house since Bush and a few other coaches are still around. Most coordinators want to bring in their own staff.

    I wonder what the reasons were for firing Hoke and Franklin?

    Jay Glazer calls it.

    It feels much better to be rid of that guy.

    I figured Bush would still be around, seemed like that was Kubes original intention as a DC/support staff since day 1.

    If my mind serves me correctly, Arizona blocked us from talking with him.

    Ok, I can remove my Fire'em All Avatar, as it was based on what Kubes would do with the DC. :)

    you are correct. I hope we have fewer chiefs and more indians with our next staff. Kubiak did state that Rhodes will be retained for a second season though...perhaps he is Hokes replacement.

    Good riddance to Smithy boy.

    I’d imagine we’ll be welcoming Frank Bush as our new defensive coordinator, but I guess we’ll have to wait on that. I’m sure the Texans management wants to weigh their options before making that decision.
