Sean Curtis Green (born February 2, 1970) is a retired American professional basketball player and USA Triathlon certified triathlon coach. He is currently the head girls basketball coach at Convent of the Sacred Heart Prep School.

Green played basketball for #2 nationally ranked high school Oak Hill Academy in 1987. He then attended North Carolina State University (one season) and Iona College (three seasons), and was selected 41st overall by the Indiana Pacers in the 1991 NBA Draft.

After playing two years with Indiana, Green opted to be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers. At the midpoint of his third year Green was traded to the Utah Jazz (with Jeff Hornacek), where he finished the 1994 season, and his NBA venture.

Green went on to play eight more years professionally in Europe/Asia/South America: Venezuela (Puerto La Cruz 1994 and 1997 and Guanare 2002), Israel (Maccabi Jerusalem 1995), Italy (Milano 1996 and Napoli 1997), Philippines (Manila 1997 and 2000), Turkey (Istanbul 1998–2000) and France (Dijon 2001).

In 2004, Green created Green Storm Fitness LLC, a duathlon and triathlon racing team and personal and multisport training company based in New York City's metropolitan area.[1] In 2010, Green took over the girls varsity basketball program at the Convent of the Sacred Heart preparatory school in Greenwich, CT.[2] In just two years, the Tigers improved from a dismal 4-14 record, to 9-8 in 2011 and 18-7 in 2012, capturing the first Fairchester Athletic Association league and tournament championship in 23 years. After a successful 4 years of coaching at Convent of the Sacred Heart (57-28) from 2010-14, Green now resides in Marina Del Rey, California.
