    Major curb appeal.

In preparation for an interstate move, BYU's new offensive coordinator is packing up his Texas belongings. Ty Detmer -- who once starred at quarterback for his new employer -- recently listed his four-bedroom home in Austin for $1.24 million.

Detmer won the Heisman Trophy (along with a litany of other awards and accolades) during his stint with the BYU Cougars in the late '80s and early '90s. However, his college success didn't translate to NFL glory -- he bounced around the league for eight seasons before leaving professional football for coaching in 2005.

Fans can see evidence of his gridiron career all over his 4,673-square-foot house -- including the two-story office, still home to his Heisman.

The large covered patio in the back is the "perfect place to entertain," says listing agent Joanna Lee. "It's just this beautiful, big patio with plenty of room for alfresco dining."

Buyers can transform the 1.86-acre yard into "the backyard of their dreams," she says. "It's flat. It's usable. It's a blank slate. There's nothing in the way that would keep someone from building whatever they would like."

And because the home is tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, anything you build will be private, peaceful, and all yours.
