Mark Few's Coaching Abilities

I was just listening to the BS Report, and Bill Simmons did a mega-March Madness podcast.  One of his guests was a Vegas insider, Chad Millman.  They were discussing the Vegas trend in the NFL of steering away from coaches that can influence games in negative ways, like Norv Turner.  This is starting to leak into NCAA basketball come tournament time, and they began to discuss coaches that fit into this category.

Almost immediately when I heard this theory, I unfortunately thought of Mark Few.  Sure enough, he was the second name mentioned (after Coach K).  It really makes sense.  He is a great recruiter, but as an in-game coach, he doesn't make the best adjustments to help the team win.  His substitution patterns are also very questionable.  I love Few, and am always nervous after every season whether he will jump ship to a bigger program.  But would another coach give the Gonzaga a better chance of succeeding in the NCAA tournament?
