You aren't kidding. Mitch is the grim reaper. Where he goes...death follows.
However, the man has skills. The players were undersided and underskilled, their technique was awful, and they were schematically limited. But goddammit, Mitch got them to play reasonably well. His offensive lines were one of the few bright spots of the GRob era.
I think the Ted McGinley comparison could be a better analogy in this case. You like the guy, you know he's very capable in his craft, but if he suddenly appears, a cancellation is likely in the future.
