Gonzaga's Mark Few Cited For Drunk Driving, Coach Apologizes
5:43 AM PT — Few issued a lengthy statement Tuesday night apologizing for the incident … saying he’s “sorry for the hurt that I have caused to those important to me.”
“I believe as a leader and role model, I am expected to set only the best example,” Few added.
“The decisions I made yesterday do not exemplify this standard and for that, I sincerely apologize to you all. I recognize that operating a motor vehicle after consuming any amount of alcohol exhibits poor judgment.”
Few continued, “Regardless of the outcome of the pending investigation, I will never allow such a lapse in judgment to occur again.”
Famed college basketball coach Mark Few — who’s led Gonzaga to two Final Fours — has been cited for DUI … after he allegedly drove with a BAC of .120 in Idaho on Monday.
The Coeur d’Alene Police Department said in a report, obtained by TMZ Sports, that officers pulled over the 58-year-old after he was “driving erratic and speeding” in a Cadillac Escalade.
According to the docs, Few showed “several signs of intoxication” during the stop … and after refusing to complete field sobriety tests, he ultimately blew a .119 and a .120 — 1.5 times the legal limit of .08.
Police added it all went down at around 8 PM, roughly 30 miles from Gonzaga’s Spokane, Wash. campus, on the Labor Day holiday.
Few and Gonzaga both have yet to comment publicly on the incident.
Few has made a legendary run as head man at Gonzaga since taking over the program in 1999 — piling up a career record of 630-125.
He was named AP Coach of the Year in 2017 and has been named WCC Coach of the Year 14 times.
