UCLA assistant Kerry Keating will be the next head coach at Santa Clara, multiple sources told ESPN.com.

Before coming to the Bruins, Keating spent two seasons (2001-03) at Tennessee under Buzz Peterson.

Santa Clara finished the regular season with a 21-10 record and a 10-4 mark in the West Coast Conference. The Broncos missed their chance to take home the WCC tournament title with a 77-68 loss to Gonzaga.

Keating replaces the retiring Dick Davey. Keating helped recruit and lead UCLA to the Final Four the past two seasons.
