Chat With Mark Few On ESPN.com
Nov. 23, 1999
The Bulldogs, currently ranked 25th in the country, took the nation by storm last year, reaching the NCAA's Elite Eight by knocking off Minnesota, Stanford and Florida. The dream season came to an end with a hard-fought loss to eventual national champion Connecticut. After the sensational run, then-head coach Dan Monson left for the same post at Minnesota. It didn't take Gonzaga University officials long to find the sixth head men's basketball coach in the Bulldogs' 42-year NCAA Division I history, looking no further than the current staff and associate head coach Mark Few.
Few, (12-27-62), University of Oregon '87, served 10 years as an assistant coach on the staffs of Dan Fitzgerald and Dan Monson. He joined the Bulldogs for the 1990-91 season and was promoted to a fulltime assistant for eight seasons prior to his appointment to the head post July 26, 1999. Few was named associate head coach April 16, 1999.
Few's relentless recruiting and game preparation helped the Bulldogs post the best 5-year run in school history with 103 victories from 1992-96. In the last eight years the Bulldogs have won 170 games, five West Coast Conference championships and made five trips to post-season play. The highlight of the decade was Gonzaga's march to the 1999 Elite Eight, and the Bulldogs also advanced to the second round of the NIT in both 1994 and again in '98.
Although Coach Few won't be stopping by ESPN until Wednesday, you can visit his chat room and submit one or more questions and they will be saved for the coach's arrival. You can also follow the "live chat" by returning to the ESPN chat room at 1:00 p.m. PT Wednesday!
