Gonzaga men’s basketball coach Mark Few will miss the opening of the season in September due to disqualification for driving while intoxicated, he said in a statement on Saturday.
To start the season, the Bulldogs are unlikely to finish in 1st place, and on Saturday the program will miss each pre-season fan event, two shows against East Oregon (Oct. 31) and Lewis Clark State (Nov. 5). . and the opening of the season against Dixie State on Nov. 9.
The 58-year-old specialist is expected to return to Gonzaga’s next game on November 13 against Texas.
“I had a month to think about the unfortunate decisions that were made on September 6th,” the rare man says. “I sincerely apologize again and I will continue to learn from this mistake … I understand the weight of my actions and I am sorry for the impact this result has had on our team.”
Last month, several examples were cited for the DUI outside the Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and his breath samples showed blood alcohol levels of .119 and .120 – above the .008 legal limit. He initially told police he did not drink, according to the Associated Press, before that he had consumed two beers, the last drink coming four hours before driving.
In the past 21 seasons, Gonzaga has won 83.4 percent of his program, helping fewer to become a national force.
The Bulldogs went 31-0 last season, beating Baylor in the national championship game. Gonzaga is expected to fight for the crown again, with the return of star striker Drew Timm and the debut of center-back Chet Holmgren, who is the number one player in the 2021 category.
