After more than two decades as a head coach, Tim Keating joined the Stetson football staff as receivers coach.

His 110-83-3 mark at the college is 50 wins better than the second most successful coach in school history. Keating’s teams won seven Centennial Conference titles during his career. The Green Terror ran off 33 straight conference wins en route to the handful of those championships. He also led the squad to five straight appearances in the NCAA playoffs between 1997 and 2001. For his efforts, Keating was named the Division III Coach of the Year by American Football Quarterly magazine following a 10-1 season in 1997. Prior to his stint at McDaniel, Keating orchestrated the turnaround of the Wesley College program in 1988. He inherited a club with a two-year mark of 0-17, then steadily improved the program to a 9-2 mark over five seasons. A native of Amherst, N.Y., Keating played football at Bethany College (W.Va.), where he picked up his 100th career win as a head coach in 2002. He graduated in 1975 with a degree in communications. Keating broke into the collegiate coaching ranks with a pair of two-year stints as an assistant at Georgetown (1978-79) and DePauw (1980-81). Keating followed DePauw coach Jerry Berndt to the University of Pennsylvania (1982-85), where he helped construct a dynasty that dominated the Ivy League. He then moved to Rice University for the 1986 and 1987 seasons. Keating and his wife, Claudia, have one son, Matt, who was a four-year attackman on the Green Terror lacrosse team while their daughter, Hillary, also earned a bachelors from McDaniel in 2009.
