Iowa State University announced Tuesday that head men’s basketball coach Steve Prohm has signed a contract extension through 2025. 

Prohm has an 83-53 (.610) overall record through four seasons in Ames, including three NCAA Tournament appearances. 

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.

Prohm has won more than 20 games in seven of eight seasons as a college head coach, with a career winning percentage of .695 including four years at Murray State.

“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, said Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard. “He is a terrific coach for Iowa State because he is successful, fits our department culture and exhibits great integrity, kindness and humility.

The university says details of the contract extension will be available once finalized.
