In 12 seasons since replacing Dan Monson at Gonzaga, Mark Few has taken the Zags to 12 NCAA tournaments (including four Sweet 16s) and won a school-record 315 games.

Only two coaches in history (Clair Bee and Jerry Tarkanian) have reached 200 wins faster than Few, who did it in 247 career games.


Reached this through Jim Meehan's twitter.

But this board knows a helluva lot more about recruiting than he does (sarcasm dripping)

I'm always skeptical about stuff from the Bleacher Report and usually don't even open their stories, because of the lack of credentials from the majority of their contributors.

Note that the author' list is not limited to active coaches and includes folks like Everett Case and Larry Brown.

Skepticism is justified. Their top 50 all time players included neither Oscar Robertson nor Elgin Baylor. The list of coaches appears to be somewhat less biased, however. I am thinking Dana Altman belongs on the list, but I understand why he isn't. He will be soon, I think Oregon is on the rise.

The presence of Ben Braun (79), fired from Cal for being thoroughly mediocre, makes this list pretty useless.
