Stump Mitchell, who played for the St. Louis and Phoenix Cardinals from 1981-89, is interviewing with Rams head coach Jeff Fisher for the running backs coach position. Mitchell is the head coach at Southern University-Baton Rouge where he is 6-16 in two seasons.
Mitchell was a fan favorite in St. Louis. In 1985, he rushed for 1,006 yards, a career high and was also a punt and kick returner who finished his career with close to 11,000 all-purpose yards.
Prior to becoming a head coach on the college level, Mitchell worked with 1,000 yard rushers in eight of his 11 years as a running backs coach in Seattle and Washington.
