Over the course of his career, Mitchell has broken several racial barriers and has had the opportunity to work with many icons of the sport. Currently, he is the defensive line coach and assistant head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the National Football League (NFL).

As a player, Mitchell was the first African-American to play football for the storied Alabama Crimson Tide.
