Weston “Wes” Mitchell (December 8, 1890 – July 1962) was the head basketball coach for the Minnesota Golden Gophers for one lone season in 1944-45. Mitchell replaced Carl Nordly as coach after Nordly had steered the Gophers to a 17-23 record over two seasons after replacing long-time coach Dave MacMillan. McMillan came back to coach the Gophers again for the 1945-46 season. The Gophers went 8-13 during Mitchell’s one-year tenure – with a 4-8 record in the Big Ten – which placed them in a tie for sixth place. Mitchell graduated from Wisconsin-Stout in 1913. Before becoming a coach for the Gophers, Mitchell had been the head coach at Minneapolis Central, where one of his players was John Kundla — the Hall of Fame coach, who had led the Minneapolis Lakers to five NBA titles and would later be the Minnesota Gophers head coach.
