SPRINGVILLE - Scott Mitchell resigned Friday as Springville Red Devils head football coach to spend more time building his software company.
"I had to take care of my family and my business," Mitchell told me in a phone interview Friday evening.
"I have committed my heart and soul to Springville the last four years, and it has been one of the best experiences of my life but with my business growing I can't continue that kind of commitment to my players, and that wouldn't be fair to them. I can't do things half way."
Mitchell played quarterback at Springville in the mid 80's, then went on to play for the University of Utah.
He also spent 11 seasons in the NFL with the Dolphins, Lions, Ravens and Bengals.
Now, his work place moves from the football field to the board room.
