Reggie Bush is heading back home to California, as the former USC star running back has agreed to a deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

Bush, released by the Detroit Lions last month, announced his intentions via Twitter on Saturday.

"The best is yet to come #49ers", Bush tweeted.

Bush delivered his second career 1,000-yard rushing season with the Lions in 2013, but saw his production drop during an injury-plagued 2014 season. Limited to just 11 games, the 30-year-old managed just 297 yards and two touchdowns on 76 carries, though he did record 40 receptions totaling 253 yards.

The nine-year veteran will likely serve as the 49ers' primary back on passing downs while splitting ball-carrying duties with promising second-year pro Carlos Hyde.
