Tennessee Titans LB Zach Brown credits former LB coach Frank Bush for his development this year. "I learned a lot from him,'' Brown said of Bush. "He always pushed me to get better, and he helped me out a lot. Without Frank Bush, I don't think I would have had nearly as good a rookie year as I had. Everybody says behind a great player there is a great coach." Bush was relieved of his duties Thursday, Jan. 10, which was a surprise to Brown. "It was a shock to me. I thought we'd keep Frank Bush,'' Brown said. "I thought the linebackers did well. But I guess that's the business. I wish him well, though."
