Iowa State's Prohm adds former Alabama coach to staff

AMES, Iowa (AP) Former Alabama head coach David Hobbs has been named a special assistant to Iowa State coach Steve Prohm, a former team manager under Hobbs with the Crimson Tide.

Hobbs spent six seasons at Alabama, winning 110 games from 1992-98. Hobbs was later an assistant at Kentucky for seven seasons on Tubby Smith's staff.

Hobbs has worked in the NBA since 2008, serving as a scout for Charlotte, Brooklyn and Utah.

Prohm says his familiarity with Hobbs, combined with Hobbs' professional experience, will make him a strong addition to the program.
