Hal Mitchell has the worst win percentage in BYU football history. Mitchell played professionally for the New York Giants and after his pro career decided to get into coaching. Mitchell was never able to get a winning record at BYU and won only a total of four conference games.

Here is a breakdown of Michell's time at BYU.

  • 1961: 2-8, 2-4 conference
  • 1962: 4-6, 2-2 conference
  • 1963: 2-8, 0-4 conference

Mitchell struggled in his last season with the Cougars and was unable to get a win in conference, which led to him being fired after the 1963 season.
