#First44 Day 6: A New Set of Wheels

April 15, 2015

Mitchell was named head coach of the North Texas women's basketball team on April 9, 2015. Between moving back to Denton, getting to know the team and beginning to operate the Mean Green program, Mitchell will be very busy early on in her tenure. We want to give fans an in-depth look at her #First44 days on the job in the form of a 44-part series that will run from April 10-May 23.

There are definitely some perks to being a head coach. Jalie Mitchell discovered that today when she was "spoiled" with a dealer edition 2015 GMC Acadia, courtesy of the James Wood dealership.

"It has a lot more features than I'm used to; I've always driven a small SUV," she said. "It's a very smooth ride with plenty of bells and whistles. I love it already!"

Of course every car needs a name, and Mitchell is crowdsourcing for ideas about her new one. It should look great parked in her newly-minted parking space on the newly-refurbished Highland Street next to the Super Pit.
