Gonzaga University head coach Mark Few has established himself as one of the most successful coaches in NCAA Division I basketball annals in his 21 seasons at the helm, and in the process has made Bulldog basketball a household name across the country. He served as an assistant coach at GU for 10 seasons prior to take the reins of the program.
Few has put together one of the most dominating runs in NCAA history, especially in the West Coast Conference. The Zags have won or shared 19 regular season league titles in his 21 seasons (all but the 1999-2000 and 2011-12 season) and taken home the conference tournament championship 16 times. The Bulldogs won or shared 11 straight West Coast Conference regular-season titles from 2000-11, which was the longest current active streak in the nation at the time and the second-best streak all-time in the NCAA Division I ranks behind UCLA's 13 Pac-10 Conference titles from 1967-79.
Few led Gonzaga to the national championship game in the program's first-ever Final Four in 2017, three Elite Eight appearances (2015, 2017 and 2019) and nine Sweet 16 appearances (2000, '00, '06, '09, '15, '16, '17, '18, '19), coached 16 All-Americans, eight Academic All-Americans, 88 all-conference selections, 14 WCC Players of the Year, eight league newcomers of the year and eight league defenders of the year. Few has also cultivated NBA talent, including current NBA players in Domantas Sabonis, Kelly Olynyk, Zach Collins, Nigel Williams-Goss, Rui Hachimura and Brandon Clarke. He also helped recruit and develop Dan Dickau, Richie Frahm, Adam Morrison, Jeremy Pargo, Elias Harris, Austin Daye, Rob Sacre and Ronny Turiaf, all NBA players. Morrison became the highest-drafted player in GU history when he was taken No. 3 overall by the Charlotte Bobcats in 2006.
