Former Hawkeye tailback Derrick Mitchell dies

ST. LOUIS(KWWL)–Former Iowa running back Derrick Mitchell died Monday after he was injured in a car crash late last week, Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz said Tuesday.

Mitchell was 24.

“I think all of us are very sorry to hear about Derrick Mitchell,” Ferentz said. “I guess he was involved in an accident last Friday morning. That’s a tough circumstance. It’s a very tough thing. Way too young for something like that to happen. Our feelings, certainly, and our condolences are with his entire family.”
