Recruited to Melbourne after 48 games with Port Adelaide, and 29 for Sturt (where his father had also played), Yeo crossed to Victoria midway through 1972. He impressed in the reserves, but after playing three of the last four games of the season he went overseas and ended his VFL career.
In 1975 Yeo, who who worked as a marketing and advertising consultant, was engaged by the club as its first fundraising coordinator.
After leaving Melbourne he moved to Noosa, Queensland where he suffered a serious injury in a freak accident. In 2002 he slipped on a polished floor and ran his head through a wall. He was not discovered for 26 hours, and the accident had broken his neck and left him a quadriplegic. He was initially not expected to survive his injuries.
He later worked as a consultant for the Brisbane Lions.
