Reggie Bush isn’t advising the Lions on the head coaching search, but the veteran running back has a few thoughts on the subject.
Bush was asked about the coaching situation Saturday afternoon by Jay Glazer on the FOX pre-game show.
“Well you know what, I don’t have the exact answers for what the next coach needs to be or who he needs to be. That’s obviously going to come from the GM, the president and the rest of those guys,’’ Bush told Glazer. “But I think the next coach needs to improve the culture of our team, our level of expectation needs to improve and our preparation can improve as well.’’
Bush also was asked what happened to the team that started 6-3 and finished 1-6.
“I begin with myself, I had too many fumbles this year,’’ Bush said. “I think it was the most fumbles I had in one season. As an offense, as a unit we had way too many turnovers constantly putting our defense in bad position, you can’t win football like that.’’
Bush had five fumbles which is indeed a career-high. He had four in each of the previous two seasons with the Dolphins.
The offense needs some work which is one reason the Lions have interviewed four coaching candidates who have offensive expertise.
Ken Whisenhunt still appears to be the favorite to replace Jim Schwartz. The Lions interviewed him on Thursday.
Whisenhunt’s Chargers play the Broncos at Denver at 4:40 p.m. Sunday. If the Chargers lose, look for quick movement by the Lions to sign Whisenhunt.
