Now that the tournament has gotten to the Final Four I took

some time to research some mid major type coaches that made a run this year...hoping to find some diamond in the rough who would love an opportunity to coach at Clemson in the ACC.

After looking at several potential coaches, one kept standing out to me - the coach at Gonzaga. His name is Mark Few, he is a young, energetic up and coming coach. He just took some mid major program that nobody had ever heard of a couple months ago and almost made the final four. If he could make this little school (I think they're from Utah or California or something) into a Cinderella, he could certainly get Clemson into the tournament.

Plus, we could get him on the cheap since most mid majors pay their coaches like $200k or so. He'd be grateful just to get paid half of what CBB gets paid.

Hopefully D-Rad is doing the same research I am and picks up the phone to call this guy, because now that he's proven that he can make a run in the tournament, some other schools like Clemson will come calling. He'd be a way better hire than the one our rivals Alabama just made (lol at hiring from Buffalo, everyone knows the Bills suck!).

but just because coachmac says it doesn't mean it's true. He's a moran.

But he’s a coach, so I hold him to a higher standard.***

Gonzaga is not a team that has burst on the scene this year, they have been an excellent basketball program for several years.

I don't even think they've been in the NCAAT before

Maybe they made an NIT or CBI run? But Mark Few has probably only been there a couple years, so it would be good to hire him now before the SEC comes calling

Why would the SEC come calling?

Has he been fired previously for recruiting violations?

Well there are only 2 real basketball conferences

1. ACC

Distant 2nd is 2. SEC

If no ACC school gets him, then someone from the SEC will

Not sure about the name, Few?

Aren't we fed up with few? We need a Coach Awesome, Coach Many, Coach Undefeated, like the guy at N.W. Missouri A&M State Baptist coachwac was talking about


Lol, I understand your concern, and I too was worried

when I saw his last name was "Few." But trust me, I've done my research and I think this young man has a bright future ahead of him in college basketball. So it might as well be at Clemson.

The only other concern I'd have is his

biggest conference rival is St. Marys. He actually lost to a bunch of Marys in his conference tourney this year. I realize they may have had divine help being saints and all, but still! But I'm open to seeing what he can do, now that Maryland has been banished

He’s not coming to Clemson, he has much better support where he is, and a new arena.


He'd come to Clemson in a heartbeat

Renovated LJC in Clemson, South Carolina > new arena somewhere in Utah or wherever Gonzaga is

So why would a guy who was born in Oregon, and coaches at a school in Spokane Washington want to pull up his roots and come to Clemson, where the last three head coaches combined haven't had the success rate that Mark Few has had at Gonzaga?


He just made the elite 8 moran

Brad was just in the Sweet 16 last year, that's only a difference of 1 win!

Plus, I think Gonzaga is in Utah or North Dakota or something stupid like that. Any coach would easily jump at the opportunity to coach in the ACC instead of being stuck in some podunk little mid major school where the most they can make is a couple hundred thousand.

Added bonus, Dabo could probably mentor him since at one time Dabo was a young coach trying to make it in the ACC also, like Mark Few would be.

Blue bloods have been trying to hire Few for decades

He's been winning at this rate in the WAC for year and years, and keeps turning down the premier coaching jobs in the country. He turned down UCLA, Oregon, Texas, and Stanford already.

If he hasn't left already, he's not going ANYWHERE. And if by some off chance he decides to leave, Clemson has very little chance to land him.

Clemson has never offered him a job

There's no way he'd turn down coaching at Clemson and being in the ACC where he can finally make a decent living.
