We know, we know. It's nowhere close to football season, but that hasn't stopped us from checking out the off-season property of John Fox, the Chicago Bears' new head coach. Fox just put his Charlotte, NC, mansion on the market.
So what does the house of a head coach look like? It's big. Very big. You'll likely need a game plan to navigate this sprawling residence, which measures in at 14,866 square feet. You should also harbor an affinity for golf.
The "unparalleled" Spanish-style estate is located on the 14th fairway of the Quail Hollow Club in the affluent Quail Hollow neighborhood. While the clubhouse is just for members, residents have a front-row seat to major events, including the PGA Championship in 2017.
If you're more into the gridiron than the golf course, the grassy backyard is large enough to host a touch football game or two.
But if you prefer to be a Monday morning quarterback, you can sit back and review game film in the giant home theater.
Built in 2007, the opulent six-bedroom manse has "space galore" for all kinds of entertaining. There's a grand foyer, a great room, and a marble staircase on which to make your dramatic entrance.
The mild climate also means plenty of time outside. The pool and covered patio are perfect for al fresco parties. This outdoor living room comes with a fire pit, cozy furniture, and a flat-screen that guarantees no sporting event will go unwatched.
Foxy, as he's known to friends, spent 10 years in Charlotte as the head coach of the Carolina Panthers. He and his wife, Robin, held on to their house when he moved on to coach the Denver Broncos in 2011.
After getting the boot in Denver after a playoff flameout, the 60-year-old coach accepted the head position with the Bears. And now the couple, who have three sons and a daughter, are letting the house go. For a hefty $7 million price tag. We're guessing the new job means less time for golfing trips.
