Mitchell extended his contract with England for another two years and a half in February 2021, only to inform Eddie Jones two months later that he wished to retire from Test rugby. In July, his departure from England was confirmed, and he was named Wasps attack coach, a position he will keep in addition to his responsibilities with Japan.

His abrupt U-turn was reportedly prompted by a supposed spat with Eddie Jones. Mitchell, though, rejected those allegations in a December interview, saying he still had a close friendship with the Australian. He declared that he left the England squad because he valued his life more than merely winning a Rugby World Cup 2023.
