Following a 2-22 season in which the team went 0-18 in Big 12 play, Iowa State has parted ways with head men's basketball coach Steve Prohm.
Prohm spent six seasons on the sidelines for the Cyclones. His tenure got off to a strong start, as Iowa State posted a 23-12 record and reached the Sweet 16 during the 2015-16 season.
After another trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2017, Prohm slipped to 13-18 in 2017-18, However, he bounced back with 23 more wins and another berth in the Big Dance the following year.
But a 12-20 showing in 2019-20 and this year's disastrous output led to Prohm being shown the door in Ames.
Prohm's dismissal--or "mutual" parting-- is the sixth firing from a major conference program in Division I today.
If ever there was a "Black Monday" in college hoops, this was it.
Despite this year's awful record, Iowa State has proven to be a place where you can win games. We wouldn't be shocked to see the Cyclones bounce back with the right head coaching hire.
