Steve Prohm, who spent the last four seasons coaching at Murray State, has been hired as the Iowa State Cyclones‘ next head coach, as CBS Sports first reported.

He won 78 percent of his games (104-29) while at Murray State, and has been one of the hottest commodities on the coaching market in recent years.

Prohm was beat out by Avery Johnson for the Alabama job in April, but may have found himself an even better destination in Iowa State.

The Cyclones will likely be a preseason top-10 team, as they return their top three scorers from last season, in Georges Niang, Monte Morris and Jameel McKay.

Prohm led the Racers to one NCAA tournament appearance in 2012, where they were a six-seed behind exceptional play from now-Philadelphia 76ers point guard Isaiah Canaan.

Cameron Payne, who declared for the NBA draft after a stellar sophomore season, was also coached by Prohm and is expected to be a lottery pick this year.

Hoiberg left Iowa State to coach the Chicago Bulls, but Prohm will bring a similar up-tempo style of play to the Cyclones’ offense.
