Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – Santa Clara head men’s basketball coach
Kerry Keating received a multi-year contract extension Friday.

The Broncos finished with a 26-12 record last season and captured the College
Basketball Invitational event by topping George Mason in three games.

“We are confident in Coach Keating’s leadership of our basketball program,”
said Broncos athletic director Dan Coonan. “In addition to the recent success,
I like the youth in the program, the depth of talent and the way they are all
buying in. We’ve graduated each of the 17 seniors to go through the program
with Coach, but beyond that I love what they are telling us in their exit
interviews. They relished their time here as student-athletes, they grew as
athletes and as people in the program, and they are having the type of
transformational life experience that we seek for all our teams. The program
is headed in the right direction, and Kerry is the right person to bring us to
the next level.”

Keating holds a 100-102 record over his six years at Santa Clara.
