Hartford, Conn. – Trinity College men’s basketball has announced the hiring of Sean Flynn as the team’s new assistant coach for the 2015-16 season. The Bantams, coached by James Cosgrove, posted a 23-7 record last winter and advanced to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament for the third time in program history.
Flynn arrives at Trinity with over seven years of coaching experience at the AAU, high school, community college, NCAA Division I and NCAA Division III levels. Most recently, he served as an assistant coach/skill development coach for the Boston Amateur Basketball Club (BABC) and as an assistant coach for the Cloud County Community College men’s basketball team. While at Cloud, the T-Birds achieved their highest NJCAA ranking in school history, coming in at 11th nationally in a January, 2015 poll.
Prior to his stint with the T-Birds, Flynn spent three seasons from 2011 to 2014 as both a graduate assistant coach and video coordinator at Marshall University. While with the Herd, he led post player development sessions, advance scouting, and assisted with in-game adjustments. In 2012, Marshall made it to the Conference USA Championship game and its NIT berth was the school’s first major post-season appearance in 25 years.
Before Marshall, Flynn worked as an assistant coach at University of Massachusetts at Boston, Jeremiah E Burke High School in Dorchester, Mass. and as a 17-U and 15-U AAU Coach with Fidelity House. Flynn also served as the South Boston site director for the BNBL, the country’s longest running free summer league.
Flynn has worked and covered summer events including the JUCO All American Showcase, The Reebok Breakout Classic, Hoop Mountain, Hoop Group and Five Star Basketball camps.
He graduated from Suffolk University in 2008 with bachelor’s degree in communication and journalism. In 2013, Flynn received a master's degree in adult and technical education from Marshall University and he will complete a master's in leadership studies-education administration from Marshall in the spring.
