Kentucky head coach Matthew Mitchell contemplates the question as to how his Kentucky players planned on stopping Elena Delle Donne of Delaware during a news conference at the TD Bank Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Friday, March 29, 2013. (John Woike/Hartford Courant/MCT)

Matthew Mitchell has been an amazing coach for the women’s basketball team. Taking them to 7 straight NCAA tournaments. Four trips to the Sweet Sixteen in five years. So, what is driving players and coaches away from this program?

There have been six players who are no longer part of the team, five of those are transfers and one was a dismissal, all of which have happened in the last six months. There has also been two recruits back out of their commitments to Coach Mitchell and the Lady Cats. This is troubling news and that’s not even all of it! Three assistant coaches have now fled the program with Camryn Whitaker being the latest.

As fun as it is to see the man dance at Big Blue Madness is it time for Coach Mitchell to no longer be here?
