The Iowa State Cyclones have reached a three-year extension with men’s basketball coach Steve Prohm. He is now signed through June 30, 2025.
Since he was hired, he has an 83-53 record, including guiding the team to three NCAA Tournament appearances.
“It was important to (Iowa State President) Dr. Wendy Wintersteen, Coach (Steve) Prohm and me that we sent a message to our student-athletes, future recruits and fans that there is a strong mutual desire for Steve to be our men’s basketball coach,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “He is a terrific coach for Iowa State because he is successful, fits our department culture and exhibits great integrity, kindness and humility.”
This past season, he guided the team to a 23-12 record. The team also had a 9-9 conference mark.
They were 12-4 at home this season. They were also 11-8 on the road.
Their season ended in a 62-59 loss in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Champion to the Ohio State Buckeyes in the first-round on Friday, March 22.
The 44-year-old Vienna, Virginia native has had three winning seasons in his four-year tenure. During the 2017-18 season, the team went 13-18.
“I couldn’t be more grateful and appreciative for the chance to be the head men’s basketball coach at Iowa State,” Prohm said. “The support of the school administration has been great and what more can be said about the fan base. Whether we’re playing in Hilton Coliseum, Maui, Kansas City or Tulsa, you can count on amazing support. I have one of the elite college jobs in the nation. My family has really settled in Ames, and we want to be here a long time.”
