Keating was born in Stoughton, Massachusetts and grew up in Rockville Centre, on New York's Long Island. He attended Archbishop Molloy High School in Queens and Seton Hall Preparatory School in West Orange, New Jersey.
In assistant coach roles at Tennessee and UCLA, Keating became known as one of the nation's best recruiters of incoming talent. These accomplishments and reputation helped Keating become the 14th head coach of Santa Clara when the school decided to replace longtime coach Dick Davey.
Keating signed a six-year contract through 2013 at his hiring and was extended for two years through the 2014-15 season in 2011. In October 2013, Keating signed a multi-year contract extension.  Despite being Santa Clara University's second highest paid employee, he refuses to wear a suit and tie to his own games.
