Santa Clara, CA (Sports Network) – Santa Clara University Friday named Kerry
Keating head men’s basketball coach.
Keating was an assistant for four seasons at UCLA, helping the Bruins to two

“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to announce Kerry Keating as our head
basketball coach,” Santa Clara athletics director Dan Coonan said. “He has
earned a tremendous reputation for himself within the industry as a phenomenal

history of Broncos basketball, spent two seasons at Tennessee (2001-03) under
Buzz Peterson, under whom he also coached at Tulsa in 2000-01.
