According to an article published by The Athletic this morning and just confirmed by the Spokesman-Review, Mark Few’s suspension for his Labor Day DUI arrest has been announced. The suspension will be the season’s first four events: today’s Kraziness in the Kennel, the two exhibition games against Eastern Oregon and Lewis-Clark State and the regular season opener against Dixie State.
Few was stopped on Sept 6, 2021, after a local firefighter reported a vehicle driving erratically through Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The responding officer reported Few, “reportedly smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes”. Few was subsequently arrested then released later that evening with a citation.
In a Gonzaga news release, Few states “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.”
Few’s “four event” suspension will allow him to be back on the sideline for Gonzaga’s first big test of the season, the November 13 contest against Texas at the Kennel. Assistant Brian Michaelson will lead the team during Few’s suspension.
