"But like my good friend/cousin Marc (Upshaw) told me about two months ago, he said, 'Let me tell you something. This is the best thing that could have happened to you. You've been through everything this year that normally takes five years for a coach to go through.' "
Mitchell said he has no regrets and holds no grudges, not even against Carter.
"When you're coaching men in tough situations or in high stress situations, there are going to be some meltdowns," he said.
"But the players have to understand that you're going to stand your ground for what you believe."
