Aleksandar Šćepanović (born December 11,  1982 ) is a Croatian basketball coach .


Šćepanović, a 1.98 meter tall builder and winger, played with the Croatian first division side Kvarner Rijeka and KK Dubrovnik , the Slovenian club Hopsi Polzela and, at the end of his playing time in the 2010/11 season, with the Hungarian first division side Salgótarjáni KSE under contract.

After the end of his playing career, Šćepanović worked at Kvarner Rijeka as a coach in the youth field and as an assistant coach of the first division team. In the run-up to the 2014/15 game year, he took over the position of head coach at the German regional league team KIT SC Karlsruhe and after a year switched to the neighboring club PS Karlsruhe . He led the "lions" to win the championship in the southwest season in the 2015/16 season and thus to promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga ProB . In the ProB, under Šćepanović's leadership, Karlsruhe was also in the top group and finished the 2016/17 season as runner-up in the third-highest German division, which meant promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga ProA .

When Igor Jovović left the MBC following the season, Šćepanović was promoted to head coach at the Bundesliga club. At the end of January 2019, his team was level on points with the relegation ranks on a non-relegation zone. He decided to return to the post of assistant coach to leave the job of head coach to Silvano Poropat , who was brought back to the MBC to lead the team to relegation. When Wojciech Kaminski took a break as an MBC coach from the beginning of November 2019, according to the club, to recharge his batteries, Šćepanović temporarily took over the post of head coach at the Weißenfelsern. However, the team's performance announced shortly after that the separation from Kaminski had sporting reasons, in mid-November 2019 Björn Harmsen came as the new head coach, Šćepanović moved back to the position of assistant coach.
