The SEC coaching carousel is having off-the-field repercussions -- namely in the spectator sport of real estate.

Mark Richt, longtime coach of the Georgia Bulldogs, parted ways with the team in November 2015, after 15 seasons as the boss. He landed his next job faster than a 4.2-second 40-yard dash -- signing on days later as the head coach of the Miami Hurricanes.

Around the same time, Kirby Smart left his position with the University of Alabama to take over as the new head coach for the Bulldogs.

And now that everyone is getting settled into their new roles, the real estate is starting to fly.

Smart put his Tuscaloosa, AL, home on the market last week, and now Richt has listed his Watkinsville, GA, home.

Richt's former home -- listed for $799,900 -- has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms on a 4-acre lot.

The home, full of French Provincial touches, offers plenty of upside: The formal dining room has arched windows, crown molding, ornate wainscoting, and a hardwood floor.

The study is amazing, with wood-paneled walls, rows of bookshelves, and a sliding ladder. Out back, there is a seating area with a rock-wall fireplace to keep things cozy.

As for a place in Miami, Richt is too late to pick up the home of his Hurricanes predecessor, Al Golden. The ousted 'Canes coach sold his house for $1,975,000 in December.
