Former coach of the University of Miami Hurricanes football team Al Golden has put his South Miami home up for sale less than a week after being fired. The Spanish-style home, nestled on an acre of land in Glenvar Heights, was built in 1988 and sold to Golden and his wife, Kelly, by the previous owners in 2011 for $1.775M. Naturally, the home is just a few minutes drive west of the University of Miami's Coral Gables campus, which houses the Hurricanes' athletic facilities. The house is two stories tall, with six bedrooms and five and a half baths. Amenities include a heated pool with a swim-up bar; spacious yard with a grill; wine storage; library; gym; a large multi-car garage, and a fire pit. The house was completely remodeled by the Goldens, who reportedly put $215,000 into renovations. The house's many furnishings are being sold at an additional cost.
Golden took over the university's football program amid a booster scandal and NCAA sanctions. While coach, Golden amassed a disappointing 32-25 record for the Hurricanes, whose fans had higher aspirations for the team. The heavily publicized firing came after Golden coached the team to its worst loss in school history. Former players called for his job on Twitter prior to the ousting. Some fans even flew a banner over the stadium routinely since 2014 hoping for the same result. - Jonathan Peltz
