Assistant Coach

Flynn joined the Gee-Gees as associate coach in the summer of 2014 after four seasons as head coach of the CEGEP de l’Outaouais Griffons. Named the head coach of the Griffons in February of 2010, Flynn won the school’s Coach of the Year award for 2013-14. Before that, Flynn coached the juvenile girls team at l’Arsenal du Collège Nouvelles-Frontières, where he got his coaching start as the boys team coach.

The Gatineau native also brings connections to the elite players coming through the Basketball Quebec development system. As an assistant coach for Outaouais regional U16 women’s team at the Quebec Games in 2010, he coached Catherine Traer on the Games-winning team. He has also coached U15 in the Outaouais region, and returned to the Quebec Games as the Espoir U14 assistant coach in 2014.

Before turning to coaching, Flynn played high school ball at Collège Saint-Alexandre, and one year of CEGEP at Nouvelles-Frontières. He earned a civil law degree (L.L.L.) and a common law degree (L.L.B.) from the University of Ottawa, graduating in 2009. After passing the Quebec bar in 2010, Flynn worked for the Association of French Speaking Jurists of Ontario, a non-profit organization which works to defend French rights.
