Steve Prohm Mentioned as Candidate at Iowa State

According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Murray State head coach Steve Prohm is in the mix to replace Fred Hoiberg at Iowa State.

Prohm, who is seemingly mentioned as a potential candidate for every job in America, led the Racers to a 29-6 season in 2014-15.

Hoiberg left Iowa State to coach the Chicago Bulls.

The Desmoine Register mentioned Prohm as a potential candidate for the job on Tuesday.

Here's an excerpt about Prohm:

STEVE PROHM, Murray State

Age: 40

Upside: Four seasons at the Ohio Valley Conference school resulted in a 104-29 record, an NCAA Tournament appearance, a 2011-12 team that went 31-2 and a 25-game winning streak last season. His offense appears like what ISU fans are accustomed to. Murray State averaged 78.0 points last season, 10th nationally. They averaged 19.6 3-point shots a game.

Downside: Can he recruit at the Power Five conference level? He reportedly turned down a $1 million-plus a year job at Mississippi State because of loyalty to Murray State. Would he do the same if offered by Iowa State?

Contract status: He averages $500,000 annually through 2020, according to details of a contract renewed in March.
