He played college basketball at the University of Arizona under head coach Lute Olson. As a player at Arizona, the Wildcats had a 104-23 (.819) record, two Pac-10 Conference championships, and an appearance in the 1994 Final Four. He remains Arizona's fourth all-time steals leader (208) and sixth all-time leader in assists (560). Aside from his NBA career, Geary played two seasons in the Continental Basketball Association (1998 to 2000), and in Israel, Portugal, France and the Ukraine.[4]

In 2005, Geary became recruiting and basketball operations coordinator at Arizona, working under Lute Olson.[4] He then became head coach of the NBA D-League's Anaheim Arsenal for 18 months, before returning to Olson's staff as an assistant coach in 2008.[5][6] From 2009 to 2011, Geary was an assistant coach at Southern Methodist University under head coach Matt Doherty.[7]

In 2012, Geary was named coach of the year while at the helm for the Japanese professional basketball league's Yokohama B-Corsairs.[3] The following season, Geary led the B-Corsairs to the league title, becoming the league's first foreign-born coach to win the championship.[8]
