Gonzaga coach Mark Few cited for DUI in Idaho, per report



Gonzaga men’s basketball coach Mark Few was reportedly cited for driving under the influence in Idaho on Monday night.

The Spokesman-Review (Spokane, Wash.) reported on Tuesday that Few was stopped by police in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, around 9 p.m. MT. According to police reports obtained by the Spokesman-Review, officers responded after “he was called in as driving erratic and speeding.”

Few reportedly refused to complete a field sobriety test, but provided breathalyzer samples of .119 and .12, well above the legal limit of .08.

Gonzaga also did not respond to a request for comment to the Spokesman-Review. Few released a statement after news was released of his arrest:

Few, 58, is 630-125 all-time since taking over the program in 1999. His Bulldogs teams have made the NCAA Tournament 21 out of 22 seasons during his tenure; his team was also eligible in 2020, but the tournament was canceled at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. His teams have twice made the Final Four, finishing as the runner-up twice in both seasons. Few is the all-time leader in winning percentage among NCAA Division I men’s basketball coaches with at least 10 years of experience.
