Steven Marshall Prohm is an American basketball coach who is currently in his second tenure as the head coach for Murray State men’s basketball. Previously, Prohm was the head coach at the Iowa State University, a position he had held from 2015 to 2021. He served in the same capacity at the Murray State University from 2011 to 2015.

Steve Prohm began his coaching career in 1998–1999 as a volunteer assistant to the Billy Kennedy at Centenary College, where he initially lived in the basement of a dorm and lived off cafeteria meals.

He followed Billy to the Southeastern Louisiana University, where he spent five seasons as an assistant before leaving for Tulane University. In 2006, he rejoined Billy’s coaching staff, this time at the Murray State University. He played a key role in Murray State’s resurgence under Billy 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.

Steve was named Murray State’s 15th head coach on May 23, 2011, after Billy left for Texas A&M. In his first season, Steve 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, as well as an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
