These include the Hancock Youth Leagues and serving as the assistant coach at Hancock High School.

Keesler also started and ran the East Branch Softball League from 2006 to 2012.
In his first season with the Broncos in 2017, Keesler helped coach the infielders, and played a big part in the team’s recruitment. SUNY Delhi competed at the inaugural ACAA Tournament at SUNY Canton, where infielder Sierra Becht was named to the All-Tournament Team.
