Where Are They Now? Donnie Shell

Steelers DL Coach Mitchell A Selfless Man, Just Like His Players

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive line coach John Mitchell can be looked at as a mad scientist of sorts, trying to mold massive pieces of clay into a monstrous Frankenstein type of wrecking machine for the team’s 3-4 defense.
