Murray State’s Steve Prohm is in the mix to replace Fred Hoiberg at Iowa State, sources told ESPN.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) June 2, 2015
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
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.
