WASHINGTON (AP) -Washington Redskins running backs coach Stump Mitchell has accepted the head coaching job at Southern University.
Mitchell met with new Redskins coach Mike Shanahan on Monday morning and turned in his final report on the team’s running backs. Mitchell’s agent, Burton Rocks, says Mitchell then started his drive south and plans to appear at a news conference in Baton Rouge on Wednesday.
Mitchell joined the Redskins in 2008, coming from Seattle with coach Jim Zorn. Zorn was fired last week and replaced by Shanahan, who is expected to overhaul Washington’s coaching staff.
Southern fired coach Pete Richardson last month after a 6-5 season. Southern athletic director Greg LaFleur played with Mitchell on the St. Louis Cardinals from 1981-86.
