Kerry Keating out as Santa Clara head coach

The Santa Clara Broncos have not made the NCAA Tournament since 1996 and it’s been a tough run for the team. They are looking to go in a different direction into the future and that starts with a change at the top.

According to reports, head coach Kerry Keating has been fired after nine seasons with the Broncos. This comes after the team finished 11-20 this year and below .500 in each of the last three seasons.

Keating joins Pacific head coach Ron Verlin as the second West Coast Conference coach to be relieved of their duties. Despite losing his job, Keating is still very proud of what he has been able to do with the team.

Sad that I won't coach this crew next year. But PROUD AS HELL for what we did to get them ready! #Broncos for life. pic.twitter.com/fDxq53Kqwt

Keating racked up a 139-159 record with the Broncos, but he never helped the team finish better than fourth in the conference. However, he did help them win the CIT in 2011 and the CBI in 2013.
