Murray State AD upset with search firm calling Prohm last week
After a 31-2 season, it was expected Murray State coach Steve Prohm would be targeted for many of the bigger college basketball vacancies across the country. It's when he was targeted that has upset Murray State athletics director Allen Ward.
While Ward may not be happy with the timing of the call, it's apparently not out of the ordinary. One coaching source tells WPSD search firms call coaches in mid-season all of the time to check on their interest.
Minutes after the loss to Marquette, and after the search firm had already contacted him, reporters asked Prohm about whether he would return to Murray State for a second season.
"Oh yeah, I'll be back in Murray. I'll be back in Murray. I love Murray and I want to be at Murray. We signed a great class and we've got great kids coming back. We've got a great future here."
