Mitchell begins his conversation with Howard by discussing the potential and draw of the Indiana State head coaching position.

“I just think that this place is a sleeping giant. I mean, we saw what the men’s program did last season, winning over 30 games, went to the NIT finals. … I was fortunate enough I went to the semifinals at Butler to see Indiana State play. … So when this came up and now that I have an opportunity to be here, I see the type of support that Indiana State has and all of those things. So I just want to bring some type of excitement, a winning culture,” Mitchell said.

Later, Mitchell discusses his approach to coaching in the current era of college basketball.

“I’m really big on relationships. If we can have a solid, solid relationship and a solid understanding of one another, I think that we can build this program very, very quickly. But yes, next season, next year, you know, having a full year under our belt and able to get into that transfer portal at an earlier time. And with the connections that I have, and my assistant coaches have as well — I think that we’re going to really change this program in a positive way.”
