Mitchell played as a rover and was consistently one of the top possession getters in the league every season. After retiring from Carlton in 1996, he kept involved with the club by becoming their runner. He was promoted by the Blues to assistant coach in 2003, but left in 2007 to join Hawthorn, again as an assistant, and was part of the premiership team in 2008. He left the Hawks at the end of the premiership winning season to join Fremantle as an assistant coach. At the end of the 2011 season he left Fremantle to return to Melbourne after his son Tom Mitchell was drafted by the Sydney Swans under the father-son rule.
