Early life and college education
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.
Keating enrolled at Seton Hall University in 1989 and played on the Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball team as a walk-on as a freshman under coach P. J. Carlesimo. The following year, Keating became a student assistant and video coordinator on Carlesimo's staff. Keating graduated from Seton Hall in 1993.
Keating served as administrative assistant for Wake Forest head coach Dave Odom in the 1993–94 season. The following season, Keating joined Jan van Breda Kolff's staff at Vanderbilt as an assistant coach. Keating then returned to Seton Hall University in 1995 to be an assistant coach for three seasons, first under George Blaney then under Tommy Amaker.
Having previously worked with Buzz Peterson as assistant coaches at Vanderbilt, Keating became an assistant coach under Peterson at Appalachian State in 1998. Keating would follow Peterson to Tulsa in 2000 and Tennessee in 2001.
In 2003, Keating joined Ben Howland's staff at UCLA. Rivals.com ranked Keating as one of the nation's best recruiters of incoming talent in 2005. 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. He is Santa Clara University's second highest paid employee.
