    With Brad Underwood leaving Oklahoma State for the Illinois job, I believe this makes Prohm the lowest paid coach in the Big 12. With the success that he's had, do you guys think Iowa State should give him a raise so we don't have to worry about him potentially leaving for more money like Underwood just did?

    If this has already been posted somewhere, let me know..

    If he doesn't get a big raise he will be gone within 1-2 years.

    You can't have the lowest paid guy performing like he has.

    He needs an extension and raise. We've got to pay him market value.

    Next season is important for Prohm's rating after losing the winningest seniors this year. If he can make it to post-season then sure double his pay or even more. But a raise this year could appreciate his efforts and motivation

    Give him a raise and maybe moderate extension. Not sure how long he has right now. I still want to see how next year goes before going crazy.

    Completely agree per raise + extension.

    Should his contract extension include a "Hoiberg Return" clause?

    Kind of what I was thinking. He's earned a bump but hold off on the major raise till the next 1-2 years.

    Don't pull a Paul Rhoda's contract. He's done a great job so far, but no need to get carried away with a huge extension.

    I assume the pay raise and extension have already been in the works. Probably agreed to in principle with the details being released after the season ends.

    How much is he getting paid now? How many years left?

    This is what I was thinking. Give him a solid pay raise for next year to keep him happy (and because he has absolutely earned it), but hold off on the long term extension until next off-season or possibly the year after.

    If he takes next year's team to the tournament, then I will have seen all I need to see. Pay the man. Lock him up long term.

    Yeah, no. Hoiberg left, and left us hanging. If there's an opening i'm sure he'd be welcomed back, but we arent firing Prohm to bring back Hoiberg.

    I agree you don't extend it too far but you need to pay him fairly. Being 10th place is a slap in the face

    Day after Thompson and Moss sign their LOIs throw the checkbook at Prohm.

    Agree, he should be at where Hoiberg was at at 2 mil.

    Yeah $2m seems fair and if he can get back into the dance next year or the year after, then you have to bump him to $2.6 or so.

    5 year deals are fine, and put the money into it.
    5 years at market value would seem like a good deal.

    A raise in base pay and maybe a small extention but bump the bonuses big. I don't know how much he gets per tournament win. Big 12 title pays I'm sure. Raise those bonuses. Great motivation and you don't get to crazy with the base
