Mark Richt is headed to Coral Gables to become the next head coach of the Miami Hurricanes. Although he hasn't inked the contract yet, countless outlets are reporting it's a done deal with rumors of his salary hovering around $4 million a season. After being fired at Georgia, he's owed a $4-million buyout as well.
With that, it's time to go house hunting for the Richt family.
Odds are he'll want to live within a few miles of the University of Miami campus in Coral Gables, like recently fired Al Golden, who listed his six-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom home in Glenvale Heights for just under $2 million.
Richt and his wife have four children, so he's going to need some ample space. Here are three options, varying in price and location.
Asking: $3.99 million
Our first option will suit Richt if he wants to be a football throw from campus. This seven-bedroom, six-bathroom Mediterranean mansion is on the Gables waterway.
7275 Old Cutler Rd, Coral Gables
Asking: $5.95 million
This seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home is pricier but offers superior entertainment options, like an enormous backyard with a full basketball court. That could come in handy if he offers up his home for a team barbecue. It's off Old Cutler, a little less than two miles from campus.
200 Edgewater Dr, Coral Gables
Asking: $9.75 million
Now we swing for the fences with this 10-bedroom, eight-bathroom waterfront estate known as Java Head at 200 Edgewater Drive, sitting on a whopping three acres. This beautiful 1936 creation stretches 11,865 square feet and has some unbelievably unique features, like hobbit-style round door frames.
