Bush added it wouldn't help the team if he tried to come back at 50 percent or 75 percent. "If I can't be me, there's no point in me being out there," Bush said.

Really, the background he had with Jeremy Bates, and then his ability to come out here and prove it to us that he was ready to take over that role, really made it an opportunity for us."
