Fang Mitchell Gets Three More Years with Coppin (3135 hits)

At 5 oclock on a fall morning in 2009, Coppin State University basketball coach Fang Mitchell drove then-sophomore Michael Harper to the hospital for surgery on his wrist. Harper, from Milwaukee, appreciated the show of support then and now.

When Harper finishes his college career next season for the Eagles, Mitchell will be there for him again, just like Harper would want it.

If they were bringing in a new coach in my fourth year, it would mean a whole new system, a new personality,a different look on the team, Harper said. Him not coming back would have been horrible.

After two months of uncertainty, Mitchell is coming back for his 26th season and more. Francine Stokes McElveen, the senior advisor to the president for legal affairs, acknowledged Tuesday that Coppin has given Mitchell a new, three-year contract that will allow the legendary 63-year-old coach to finish his career at the only Division I school hes worked for.
