Another former Colts player will be joining the coaching staff,” Holder said. “Former NFL safety Mike Mitchell
a renowned leader as a player, will join Frank Reich’s staff as an assistant secondary coach, per league source. Mitchell was a 2nd round pick in 2009 and played 10 seasons.”
This isn’t the first time the Colts have added a former player to the coaching staff this week.
Former Colts linebacker Cato June was an addition to the staff earlier this week as well.
Mitchell was a second-round pick by the then-Oakland Raiders in 2009. He played four seasons with the team before joining the Carolina Panthers for one season.
