Gonzaga is likely to stay put in the West Coast Conference for next season, according to a report from the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"For next season, it doesn't look promising," Mountain West Conference Commissioner Craig Thompson told the Union-Tribune Saturday. "I'd put it like this: Today is today, none of us can predict tomorrow."

The Union-Tribune broke the news late in February that the Zags had talked expansion with the MWC and were weighing their league options.

Last weekend, Gonzaga athletic director Mike Roth told CBS Sports he was hopeful that a decision would be made soon on whether the Zags would stay in the WCC, of which they have been a member since 1979, or move to the Mountain West.

"In a perfect world, we're going to be making a decision in the next couple of weeks here," Roth told CBS Sports. "But there is no such thing as perfect worlds in the crazy world of college athletics."
