Murray State Athletic Director Kevin Saal (left) and Dr. Robert Jackson (middle), MSU President, welcomed Steve Prohm as the head coach of the MSU men’s basketball team on Monday with a custom jersey with his name on the back.

Racer nation welcomed newly hired men’s basketball coach Steve Prohm with metaphorical and literal open arms on Monday afternoon when the organization held an official announcement ceremony for the hire.

Of course, Prohm isn’t a new name to the organization. He held the head coaching title for Murray State from 2011-2015 and the assistant coach title from 2006-2011. He most recently comes from coaching at Iowa State where he coached the Cyclones from 2015-2021.
