HOUSTON – University of Houston offensive coordinator Mike Nesbitt has resigned following the team’s 30-13 loss to Texas State on Saturday, head coach Tony Levine announced Monday.
Assistant coach Travis Bush will take over play-calling duties, Levine said. Bush will also coach the quarterback position for the program.
Director of Player Personnel Ken McClintock will take over Bush’s role of coaching running backs.
“We wish Mike the best in his future endeavors and thank him for his contributions to the Houston program,” said Levine. “We are confident in Travis and his play-calling ability moving forward.”
According to a university press release, Monday’s announcement marks the third time in Bush’s career he has handled play-calling duties for a program.
He spent last season as Texas-San Antonio’s offensive coordinator. Prior to his UTSA appointment, Bush spent three seasons as the co-offensive coordinator at Texas State.
“At Texas State, Bush’s 2009 offense finished eighth nationally in passing finished with 422 yards per game in total offense. Under his tutelage, quarterback Bradley George was named the 2009 Southland Conference Player of the Year."
