Named the best first year player in his rookie season, Yeats played 23 games in his first two seasons, and despite only managing six games in 1986 the tough defender was often one of the better players in poor teams during his first three seasons.

He became a regular in 1987 just as the Demons began to emerge into a finals term, and became one of the most reliable defenders in the country. After appearing as a regular in the side until 1993 he only managed seven games that year and was initially axed from the list before returning to play two more seasons. He eventually ended his AFL career for good at the end of 1995.

After joining Springvale as an assistant coach in 1996, Yeats kicked the winning goal in that year's VFA Grand Final, before returning to Melbourne as Reserves assistant coach and senior runner in 1997.

Yeats moved to Sandringham in 1999, and coached them to the to the 2000 VFL premiership. Also worked as a Melbourne development coach between 2001 and ((2003 before leaving to become coach of the TAC Cup Dandenong Stingrays in 2004.
