Gonzaga will reportedly suspend men's basketball coach Mark Few for its season opener after his DUI arrest last month in Idaho, according to The Athletic

Few will reportedly miss the team's Kraziness in the Kennel event, exhibitions against Eastern Oregon and Lewis-Clark State and the season opener against Dixie State on Nov. 9. Few, who is entering his 22nd year as Gonzaga's head coach, will be back on the bench when Gonzaga hosts Texas on Nov. 13.  

Few was arrested on Labor Day near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho when he was pulled over after someone reported that he was speeding and driving erratically. 

According to a police report obtained by Sports Illustrated, the head coach refused to complete field sobriety checks, but tests later showed that he had a blood alcohol level of .119 and .120, with the legal limit being .08.

“I deeply regret disappointing any of the members of the community, the young men and women who comprise my campus community, and the University as a whole," Few said in a statement last month

"In particular, I am sorry for the hurt that I have caused those most important to me —my family, my players, and my program.”

Gonzaga went undefeated last season with a 25-0 record and finished the regular season as No. 1 in the AP Top 25 and the Coaches Poll before losing to Baylor in the national championship game
