Steve Prohm on Alabama rumors: ‘I want to be the best head coach at Iowa State’

first_imgTULSA, Okla. — Does Steve Prohm want to return to his alma mater? Does Alabama want to hire away the Iowa State coach?That’s the speculation, with the Crimson Tide reportedly negotiating a buyout with fourth-year coach Avery Johnson and Iowa State’s 2018-19 season finished. Immediately following the Cyclones’ 62-59 loss to Ohio State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday, Prohm was asked about the rumors and reports. “There’s nothing to say, man,” Prohm said. “I want to be the best coach at Iowa State. That’s it. I mean, my AD (Jamie Pollard is) right there, he knows that. I love this job. I’m blessed to be the head coach here, first and foremost. I love Ames. There is no story. I’m trying to be the best head coach at Iowa State and see if I can be here for a long, long time.”SN’s MARCH MADNESS HQLive NCAA bracket | Live scoreboard | Full TV schedule​Pollard was then asked whether anyone representing Alabama had contacted him for permission to speak to his coach.“No, nobody,” Pollard said. “And I don’t expect there will be, because Coach Prohm’s going to be our coach.“Steve is a great man. He’s a great fit for Iowa State. We have a great collection of head coaches and he’s one of ‘em. He knows where he’s really wanted, and I’m not spending any time worrying about it.”Prohm’s history at Bama — he graduated there in 1997 with a degree in education — created speculation the Tide would reach out to him. He also was a team manager under David Hobbs for five years in the 1990s. Hobbs is a special assistant on Prohm’s current Iowa State staff.Prohm has been successful in replacing popular Cyclone legend Fred Hoiberg, going 83-53 in four seasons and qualifying for the NCAA Tournament three times. He also coached Murray State to the second round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament, part of a 31-2 season. Alabama has made the Tournament twice since the 2006-7 season, the latest coming under Johnson in 2018.Prohm was just paid over $2 million in 2018-19 according to The Des Moines Register (Iowa), and signed a new contract two years ago that runs through June 2022. Alabama is buying out the rest of Johnson’s contract through 2023, reportedly $8 million. Prohm’s existing buyout is around $3.5 million.HOOVER: Chris Beard perfect coach to lead Red Raiders’ revivalThe Crimson Tide concluded the season with an 18-16 overall record, including 8-10 in SEC play. Alabama, one of the first four teams out of the NCAA Tournament, lost as a 1-seed at home against Norfolk State on Wednesday.The Cyclones, meanwhile, just won the Big 12 Tournament last week (ISU’s second title in the last three years) and entered the 2019 NCAA Tournament as a 6-seed. They played 11-seed Ohio State late Friday night at Tulsa’s BOK Center.The Cyclones were a 5½-point favorite to beat the Buckeyes. and rallied to take a late lead after trailing most of the game. A 3-point attempt rimmed away just before the final buzzer, and Iowa State’s season was over. “The finality of the season, when you invest so much in each other, sucks,” Prohm said. “It’s hard to say goodbye, especially when you’ve had so many great moments together.“The finale really came a lot quicker than I was thinking. I really thought we had a chance to do something.”Speculation on other Alabama candidates has included two other coaches at the Tulsa Regional this week: former Tide assistant John Brannen, who took Northern Kentucky to its first two NCAA Tournament trips in his four seasons (the 26-9 Norse lost to 3-seed Texas Tech on Friday) and Houston coach Kelvin Sampson, who guided the 32-3 Cougars this season to their first outright conference championship since 1984.last_img read more

Half-time: West Ham 3 Fulham 0

first_imgAndy Carroll made an immediate impact for West Ham, who are in complete control at Upton Park.Carroll, signed on loan from Liverpool, played a pivotal role in his new team going ahead after only 54 seconds.Ricardo Vaz Te collected the England striker’s flick and laid the ball across to an unmarked Kevin Nolan, who fired into the corner of the net.Kieran Richardson, making his Fulham debut following a move from Sunderland, brought a save from keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen with a long-range effort, before West Ham almost doubled their lead.Again Carroll was in the thick of the action, this time nodding down to Mohamed Diame, who smashed a shot against the bar.Keeper Mark Schwarzer produced a near-post save to deny Vaz Te, but was unable to rescue Fulham when Mahamadou Diarra allowed Winston Reid to get in front of him and head home Matt Taylor’s 29th-minute corner.Taylor then added the third, rifling in the loose ball after Brede Hangeland had partially cleared another high ball towards Carroll.New signing Dimitar Berbatov is among Fulham’s substitutes.Click here for the Fulham v West Ham quizFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

MH370 search to be suspended

first_imgTransport Ministers from Australia, China and Malaysia have confirmed they will suspend the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 once the 120,000 sq. km priority area has been swept.Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said Friday bad weather meant that the search of the final 10,000 sq. kms of the priority area was now not likely to be completed until October and could possibly extend to December.Mr Liow said cost was not a factor in deciding to suspend the search and investigators would continue to analyse the data they had collected looking for “new credible evidence’’.He did not define what such evidence might be but said that if it did emerge, the governments would look at whether to resume the search.The search must go onMr Liow also defended the search area, saying there was no evidence to indicate the search was being conducted in the wrong place. Drift patterns of  he debris that had been found indicated the search was in the right area  “We are confident we are looking in the right area,’’ he said, noting that it was based on expert views from the Australian, US and UK investigation branches as well as companies such as Thales and Boeing.Asked about suggestions by a member of the investigation team that the aircraft had landed in a controlled ditching,   Mr Liow  said there was no evidence confirming that was the case.He admitted that a flaperon found a year ago was still under the control of the French Government and the Malaysians had not been given details of findings on the wing component. The Ministers had not been briefed on whether the flaperon had indicated a controlled ditching, he said.“This is under the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) investigation team,’’ he said. “That is the independent investigation team handling this investigation and they have been keeping in touch with the French Government to retrieve the information. So they have faced some issues in terms of getting the details from Boeing and also from the US Government.’’Australian Transport Minister Darren Chester said the decision to suspend the search after sweeping the priority are was not taken lightly and he emphasised work was continuing in analysing the data.“We have been mindful that any future search needs to have a high likelihood of success to justify raising the hopes of family and friends,’’ he said. “I want to impress upon the families the enormous task that has been undertaken over the last two and a half years and assure them that every effort has been made to locate the aircraft. “We have used the best science available, cutting edge technology, as well as highly skilled professionals who are the best in their field.’’Mr Chester noted media commentary about whether the priority search area was the correct but said he would not be second-guessing the experts.“This decision was based on what we know from the last satellite communications with the aircraft,’’ he said. “This information shows the aircraft was in a high rate of descent, so we believe the aircraft will be located somewhere near what is known as the 7th arc.   “We remain hopeful that we will still locate the aircraft in the remaining priority area, but if we don’t I hope that new information will come to light and that the aircraft will be located.’’A  joint communique from Mr Liow, Mr  Chester and their Chinese counterpart, Yang Chuantang, said attention during the update was particularly focused on delays to the search as a result of damaged equipment and recent poor weather, as well as discussion about the discovery of aircraft debris and what it meant in relation to search efforts and the investigation The communique noted that none of the debris had provided information that positively identified the precise location of the aircraft.  “With less than 10,000 square kilometres of the high priority search area remaining to be searched, Ministers acknowledged that despite the best efforts of all involved, the likelihood of finding the aircraft is fading,’’ the communique said.last_img read more

Airport sets new standards: Zuma

first_img10 May 2010King Shaka International Airport sets new benchmarks for global infrastructure development while bearing testimony to South Africa’s ability to deliver on large-scale projects, President Jacob Zuma said at the opening of the country’s new airport at La Mercy, north of Durban this weekend.“Not only was the construction of the project completed in the record time of three years, it also involved the relocation of both the cargo and passenger businesses, from the old airport to these new facilities, in one overnight operational switch,” Zuma said.“This smooth, seamless transition must surely bear testimony once again to the skills and capability we have as a country.”Critical diversion facilityIn less than 32 days, the world will converge on South Africa and the country will experience its largest wave of aviation traffic in its history when the 2010 Fifa World Cup kicks off.“We welcome the fact that the airport is going to be a critical diversion facility for OR Tambo International, should this be necessary.“We are also thrilled by the fact that we are able to present the World Cup in South Africa that is going through a huge building and reconstruction phase. Our infrastructure investment programme is doing wonders for the country economically and socially,” he said.Encouraging new investmentThe new airport will be able to process 7.5-million passengers per annum, while alleviating the pressure on the Durban-Johannesburg road route by facilitating more than 50 000 tons of manufactured goods produced in the region directly from the local airport.Zuma also called on provincial and local government to encourage new investments in tourism. These tourism packages, he said, should be competitively priced and attractive for foreign visitors, adding that the World Cup offered the country the best opportunity to welcome foreign visitors and ensure they came back again to enjoy what the country has to offer.“There has never been any doubt in my mind that this airport was the missing piece of the puzzle to enable growth and development in this region and for our country.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Basketball coach Natt eager to see India in competitive action

first_imgIndia’s new senior men’s basketball coach, American Kenny Natt, will get a chance to see his wards in competitive action for the first time when a five-nation Middle Asia qualifying tournament takes place in the Capital from Wednesday to Friday. India play Sri Lanka in the lone Pool, A game on Wednesday.Indian Coach Kenny NattThe winner of this tournament -in which the other participants are Bhutan, Bangladesh and Nepal -will qualify for the FIBA Asia Basketball Championship that will be played in China in the middle of September.Understandably, Natt is eager to see whether his new methods have made a difference or not. “I am as interested as everyone else in seeing them play, because I haven’t seen them compete since I joined. Guys perform differently in games and I will only get information about that over the course of this competition.I hope we take care of business and go up to the next level,”Natt said on the sidelines of the Junior National Championship on Tuesday. “I have pushed them harder in the last four weeks than they have ever been pushed in their lives, with regards to their discipline and concentration in particular.”Natt has a disadvantage of not knowing anything about the opposition, but downplayed the matter. “I don’t know the teams so I’m going to have a look for the first time to see what the competition is like here. I think it’s a great thing because we finally get a chance to play against someone other than ourselves, against new coaching philosophies, and that’s how you get better as a team. But I am not so concerned about the other teams as I am about my own,” Natt said.advertisementAsked to analyse the strengths and weaknesses of the Indian side, Natt said: “The biggest strength of the team is they are very hard workers. Everything I’ve put in is exactly what we use in the NBA -the offensive and defensive sets -and that’s all new to them. I’ve challenged them to remember plays and they are now running them, so that tells me they are very good cerebral players.On the weaknesses side, we need to get better on defence -that’s something every team needs to be better at.”Indian Team: Sambhaji Kadam, Amjyot Singh, Hareesh Koroth, Prakash Mishra, Satnam Singh Bhamara, Vishesh Bhriguvanshi, Amrit Pal Singh, Eudrick Pereira, Trideep Rai, Riyazuddin, Yadwinder Singh, Jagdeep Singh Bains.last_img read more
