Locked On Zags Podcast: Previewing San Francisco and discussing Mark Few and Gonzaga’s coaching tree with Kyle Bankhead…


Mark Few’s legacy extends far beyond Spokane and the Gonzaga Bulldogs, as his program has produced a litany of extremely talented coaches, including Boise State’s Leon Rice, Colorado’s Bill Grier, and of course Arizona’s Tommy Lloyd. That does not include former players who have joined the coaching ranks, a lengthy list that includes Kyle Bankhead, who is now an assistant coach at the University of San Francisco in the WCC.

Bankhead joins the show today to discuss Few’s legacy as a head coach, as well as Kyle’s own journey from a player in Spokane to an assistant coach under Grier at USD and multiple other stops along the way, until his return just this month to Chris Gurlefson’s staff at San Francisco.

Andy and Kyle also discuss new changes in college hoops, namely the transfer portal and new NIL laws, and what impact that has had on the game and where the future might be headed.
