Stanley Mitchell had no delusions of grandeur yesterday after signing a one-year contract as interim football coach at Morgan State."My back is against the wall," said Mitchell, who takes over a program that has not had a winning season in 19 years and will not have a home field next season. "I know I have to get the job done right away, and it won't be easy."Mitchell, 51, said he will start rebuilding the Bears by installing a disciplinary system of "zero tolerance" and going all-out in recruiting in the entire Baltimore metro area.

There were tears in Augie Waibel's eyes as the legendary Poly coach walked toward the locker room having lost the last game of his 35-year career, 20-13, to visiting Dunbar in yesterday's Class 2A state semifinal game.And though the Dunbar players danced on the field in celebration, there were mixed emotions all about the Poly football field.Obie Barnes, 49, had just watched his son, Dunbar receiver Chris Barnes, "just about end the career of the man whose career I helped to start" as a lineman at Edmondson.

Stanley Mitchell was informed by Dunbar principal Charlotte Brown yesterday that he will be Dunbar's football coach for at least another year."I don't have any time to celebrate because I've got to get right to work with the kids," said Mitchell, who took the Poets to the 2A state semifinals last year and was named Baltimore Sun 1993 Coach of the Year.Mitchell became the Poets' interim coach 14 months ago when former coach and athletic director Pete Pompey was placed on paid leave pending the outcome of an investigation of alleged misuse of funds.

Football previewsNo. 3 Randallstown (8-2)vs. No. 2 Milford Mill (10-0)When: 7: 30 tonightWhere: CCBC-CatonsvilleOutlook: The Millers beat Randallstown, 48-32, for the Baltimore County 3A-4A crown a week ago, but this is a Class 3A state quarterfinal playoff game. Last week, All-American QB Richard Johnson contributed to all seven Millers' scores, and LB Muhammad Howard had two interceptions, one he returned about 85 yards to set up a touchdown. Randallstown coach Anthony Knox probably had nightmares about his secondary in that loss, which ended an eight-game win streak.

ORANGEBURG, S.C. - Stanley Mitchell's nightmarish first two seasons as a college coach continued yesterday. South Carolina State extended its torment of Mitchell's Morgan State team with a 57-37 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference win at Oliver C. Dawson Bulldog Stadium. The Bulldogs have beaten the Bears 18 straight times dating back to 1979, when Morgan State won, 27-16, in Orangeburg. Neither team has had much success this season, but Morgan State was hoping to exploit a generous Bulldogs defense and pick up its first MEAC victory.

Stanley Mitchell -- three days after Morgan State's third win in 22 tries -- had three remaining days to prepare his team for a road game against a Division I-AA power.But on Tuesday morning, the first-year football coach needed to assure those inside Hill Field House of a happy homecoming for Morgan State at PSINet Stadium, more than two weeks from now. It was a tough sell, and Mitchell nearly stumbled, but he made a case for the Bears.Mitchell said his team (1-2, 0-1 in the MEAC) could beat anyone if it could get the offense, defense and special teams to show up at one time, something yet to happen in three games this season, including Saturday's 24-21 win at Rhode Island.
