The Gonzaga Bulldogs have suspended Head Coach Mark Few for the team’s season opener after he was cited for a DUI back in September. Few will not coach against Dixie State in the season opener but is expected to return to the sideline for the team’s second game the Texas Longhorns. The Texas and Gonzaga matchup is expected to be a top ten matchup when it happens near the start of the season. Gonzaga’s Head Coach will also be suspended for the team’s midnight madness festivities and the team’s exhibition games against Eastern Oregon and Lewis-Clark State.

Mark Few released this statement following the announcement of the decision: “I have had a month to reflect on the regretful decisions I made on Sept. 6. I again offer my sincere apology and I remain committed to learning from this mistake. As a consequence of my error in judgment, I will not be present at Kraziness in the Kennel and the first three games of our season. I know this impacts our student-athletes and the coaching staff as we begin the season. I understand the severity of my actions and am sorry for the impact this consequence has on our team. Thank you again to those who have supported me, my family, and our program throughout this process.”
