SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Gonzaga athletic director Mike Roth said Monday he will retire on Aug. 31, ending a 24-year run during which the Bulldogs had unprecedented success in men’s basketball and other sports. Roth has spent a total of 34 years at the private Jesuit university in Spokane, Washington. He was an assistant men's basketball coach and assistant athletic director before taking over leadership of the athletic department. Roth elevated Mark Few to head basketball coach in 1999 and the Zags have made the NCAA Tournament every year under Few, including twice reaching the national title game.
