Sean Lynch is entering his third season as the Head Coach of the Northern Vermont University-Lyndon women's basketball team. Lynch was named the head coach in 2016, and has quickly turned the Hornets into North Atlantic Conference contenders. In two seasons he has posted a 25-25 record, including an 18-18 mark in NAC play.
Under Lynch's guidance the 2017-18 Hornets posted their first winning season since returning to NCAA play in 2009. Their 10-8 conference record was also the first time that a Lyndon team has finished over .500 since the college joined the NAC in 2008. The team also earned its first NAC playoff berth since the 2012-13 season. Senior Mikayla Hodge finished her career with 1,448 points and 1,231 rebounds. Under Lynch the Hornets showed improvement in the classroom as well, as the team GPA has improved every semester and reached 3.3 in Spring 2018.
Immediately before coming to Lyndon Lynch spent three seasons as the Boys Varsity Basketball Coach at Shining Mountain Waldorf School in Boulder, CO. He posted a 54-16 overall record at SMWS, including a 21-3 mark in conference play. His 2015-16 team reached the Colorado state championship game.
Lynch spent the 2012-13 season as an assistant coach with the Middlebury College women's basketball program. That season Middlebury reached the New England Small College Athletic Conference semi-finals, the school's best finish in the past 16 seasons.
Lynch was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA. He is a 2010 graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz. He was a point guard on the 2005 state championship winning Santa Cruz High School team.
In addition to coaching women's basketball at Lyndon, Lynch spent one season as the head women's softball coach and one season as an assistant women's lacrosse coach. He spends his summers working at various youth residential and day camps. He resides in Lyndonville, VT.
