Hands off, Alabama.

Iowa State announced on Tuesday morning that they had agreed to a contract extension with head coach Steve Prohm that will keep the coach in Ames through 2025.

Prohm is an Alabamian that grew up in the south, and after Avery Johnson and the Crimson Tide agreed to part ways last week, his name was one of the first that was linked to the opening.

“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 just wrapped up his fourth season in Ames, where he has an 83-53 record and three trips to the NCAA tournament. The Cyclones won the Big 12 tournament title this year.
