#First44 Day 35: End of Term Celebration
Mitchell Joins Players for After Finals Lunch
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.

The end of an academic term is a huge relief for any student. There is finally an opportunity to take a deep breath and evaluate everything that has been accomplished over the last four months. For Jalie Mitchell and a few members of the Mean Green women's basketball team, that meant a lunch date Thursday afternoon in Denton.
"I was happy to get back in town from Conference USA meetings before all of the girls went home," she said. "It was fun to share some laughs and talk a little bit about summer plans. I really can't wait to coach these girls; we share a vision that I know they will work hard to bring to reality."
Later on, Tac and Williams accompanied senior Joh'Vonna Darrington at the student-athlete graduation reception in the Apogee Stadium HUB Club. Darrington was recognized as one of 45 North Texas student-athletes who will be graduating this weekend at the Super Pit.
