Steve Prohm (born July 12, 1974) is an American basketball coach who is the current head coach of the Murray State Racers men's basketball team.
A native of Vienna, Virginia, Prohm's family later moved to Dalton, Georgia, where Prohm attended high school at Northwest Whitfield High School in Tunnel Hill, Georgia, and lettered in basketball for three years.
He started college at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta where he played NCAA Division III basketball. Prohm only made it half way through the his first season as a player when he left the team to follow his passion for coaching. He transferred to the University of Alabama where he worked as a student assistant coach and student manager for the Crimson Tide men's basketball team for five years. He graduated from Alabama in 1997 with a degree in education.
Prohm began his coaching career in 1998-99 as a volunteer assistant to Billy Kennedy at Centenary College, where he initially lived in the basement of a dorm and lived off cafeteria meals. He followed Kennedy to Southeastern Louisiana University, where he spent five seasons as an assistant before leaving for Tulane. In 2006, he rejoined Kennedy's coaching staff, this time at Murray State University. Prohm played a key role in Murray State's resurgence under Kennedy, which culminated with a school-record 31 wins in 2009-10 and an upset of Vanderbilt in the 2010 NCAA Tournament--only the second NCAA Tournament win in school history.
Prohm was named Murray State's 15th head coach on May 23, 2011, after Kennedy left for Texas A&M. In his first season, he led the Racers to their third straight Ohio Valley Conference regular-season title, a school record-tying 31 wins (including a school-best 23-0 start), a top-10 national ranking and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
