Key Notes

  • Lyvonia "Stump" Mitchell played running back in the NFL for 10 seasons and has coached in the NFL for 18 seasons.
  • Under Mitchell, five different backs — Ricky Watters (1999-00), Shaun Alexander (2001-05), Clinton Portis (2008), David Johnson (2016) and Nick Chubb (2019) — gained 1,000 rushing yards in a season, while Andre Ellington produced 1,000 scrimmage yards in each of his first two NFL seasons (2013-14).
  • Helped his backs find the end zone as Alexander (five times) and Johnson (twice) produced 10 or more scrimmage touchdowns in a season multiple times. Alexander set an NFL record with 28 scores in 2005 and Johnson led the league with 20 in 2016.
