South Alabama sniffing around Mitchell

South Alabama is reportedly interested in interviewing Steelers assistant head coach/D-line coach John Mitchell for their vacant coaching position. Mitchell is in Mobile for the Senior Bowl.

If this turns out to be the case, the Steelers could lose Mitchell, a key member of their coaching staff.

For years, Mitchell has turned low-round draft picks into solid players and he knows exactly what the Steelers need their defensive linemen to do in Pittsburgh's 3-4.

The school is located in Mobile and Mitchell is a Mobile native.
