Highlights:

National Champs: North Carolina Roy Williams
Second place: Gonzaga Mark Few
Third place(tied): Oregon Dana Altman
Third place(tied): South Carolina Frank Martin

Roy Williams takes North Carolina to the championship game for the second straight year, this time winning it all, moving up to third place .005 percentage points behind Mike Kyrzyzewski.  With this Championship Game appearance, Williams passes that "other" North Carolina coach Dean Smith by one in both Final Game appearances and tournaments won (six and three, respectively).
After 17 straight tournament appearances, Mark Few and Gonzaga break through to the Final Four before losing in the Championship Game, moving Few up to .591, tied with Guy Lewis on the list. &nsbsp;Lewis took Houston to the final game twice ('83 and '84) in a career at Houston spanning four decades from 1956 through 1986.  Few has taken Gonzaga to the tournament every year Few has coached and has won at least one game every year except 2002 and 2008.  He made the Elite Eight in 2015 and has seven Sweet 16 appearances to his credit.
After an Elite Eight finish last year, Dana Altman takes Oregon to the Final Four this time, moving him up to a .500 tournament record at 13-13 and vacating last place on this list.  Altman had previously taken Kansas State (first round loss in 1993) and Creighton (seven trips with only two wins) before moving to Oregon and more tournament success (11-5 since 2013).  This was Oregon's second Final Four appearance, the first being in the very first tournament in 1939 which they also happened to win.
Steve Alford takes UCLA to the Sweet Sixteen, giving him enough games to debut on the list at .524, tied with Don Donoher the long time coach at Dayton.
A Sweet Sixteen finish by Purdue gives Matt Painter enough games to debut on the list at 10-10, tying him with Dana Altman and several other (retired) coaches.
