Mark Few was named one of 10 semifinalists for the Naismith Coach of the Year on Friday. He won the award in 2017.

The Zags came into the season ranked as the preseason No. 1 team, and Few has helped steer the most chaotic season in recent memory, leading the Zags to their first undefeated regular season in program history and keeping the Zags ranked as the top team throughout the entirety of the season.

There are plenty of arguments for why Mark Few should win this award for the second time in his career, but you can make the same arguments for the other nine coaches on the list as well.

Here are the 10 semifinalists for the Naismith Coach of the Year:

  • Darian DeVries, Drake
  • Scott Drew, Baylor
  • Mark Few, Gonzaga
  • Leonard Hamilton, Florida State
  • Chris Holtmann, Ohio State
  • Juwan Howard, Michigan
  • Bob Huggins, West Virginia
  • Porter Moser, Loyola-Chicago
  • Eric Musselman, Arkansas
  • Nate Oats, Alabama
