Murray State head coach Steve Prohm has reached an agreement to become the next coach at Iowa State, according to CBS Sports.

A former Racers assistant who started his coaching career while still in college, Prohm is 104-29 in four seasons, including 31-2 as a rookie head coach.

Prohm's 29-6 team that won 25 games in a row last season just missed on making it to the NCAA Tournament after losing in the OVC Conference Championship game.

Prohm was named Murray State's 15th head coach on May 23, 2011, after Billy Kennedy left for Texas A&M. In his first season, Prohm led the Racers to their third straight OVC regular-season title, a school record-tying 31 wins, including a school-best 23-0 start. The Racers also grabbed a top-10 national ranking and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

With Prohm now replacing Fred Hoiberg, who left to become the head coach of the Bulls, the Cyclones are expected to open next season as a top-10 college hoops team.
