Mitchell was named head coach of the North Texas women's basketball team on April 9, 2015.

"In order to make a difference, you have to be different; work harder, utilize self-discipline, hold each other accountable, be tougher and play stronger," she said. "They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, and that's something I've used since getting to North Texas on April 9. There are a lot of things this team can improve upon as we lay the foundation for this program. Reminding them to be different is where I would like to start."
