Xavier "Xavi" Pascual i Vives, commonly known as Xavi Pascual, (born 9 September 1972) is a Spanish professional basketball coach. On 9 May 2010 he became the youngest coach to manage to win the EuroLeague championship (only counting the Euroleague Basketball Company era, since the year 2000), and soon after, he also won the EuroLeague Coach of the Year Award. He is currently the head coach of Panathinaikos.
The first team Pascual coached was Gavà (1990–91). Other teams he has coached are: Cornellà, Santfeliuenc, Olesa, and Aracena.
In the 2004–05 season, Pascual moved to FC Barcelona, where he became the head coach of FC Barcelona Bàsquet B, the club's Liga EBA (Spanish 4th Division) reserve team.
In the following, 2005–06 season, he became the assistant head coach of the Spanish 1st Division team of FC Barcelona. After the team and then head coach Duško Ivanović parted ways in 2008, Pascual became the club's head coach. On 21 September 2012, Pascual extended his contract with Barcelona, until the end of 2014–15 season. On 3 February 2015, he extended his contract with Barcelona, until the end of the 2016–17 season.
After the 2015–16 season, in which Barcelona failed to win the Spanish ACB League, and was eliminated in the EuroLeague's quarterfinal playoffs, Pascual was fired.
On 22 October 2016, Pascual signed a three-year contract to be the head coach of the Greek team Panathinaikos.
