    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>Gary Kubiak didn't go far to find his new defensive coordinator. Frank Bush was already on his staff as senior defensive assistant.</p> <p>Kubiak will talk about Bush shortly, and I'll come back in this post to add some highlights from the press conference.</p> <p>Bush replaces Richard Smith, who was let go after the season along with defensive backs coach Jon Hoke, just hired for the same post in Chicago, and defensive line coach Jethro Franklin.</p> <p>Here are details about Bush from the team's announcement:</p> <blockquote> <p>Bush has coached every position group on the defensive side of the ball during his career. In addition to his two years working with the defensive line for the Texans, he coached the linebackers for the Houston Oilers from 1992-94 and for the Denver Broncos from 1995-99 before assuming the role of nickel/secondary coach for the Broncos in 2000. Bush was the assistant head coach/linebackers for the Arizona Cardinals from 2004-05. He also spent three seasons as the special teams coordinator in Denver from 2001-03.</p> <p>Bush got his start with the Houston Oilers working as a college scout from 1987-92 following a two-year playing career for the team. He was selected by the Oilers in the fifth round in 1985 as a linebacker from North Carolina State and was named to the all-rookie team after making 99 tackles, three sacks and recovering three fumbles. He suffered a career-ending injury in 1986 which led to his career in the front office and on the sidelines.<br /> </p> </blockquote>
