Fired Miami Hurricanes Coach Al Golden Selling His Miami Home
It looks like former Miami Hurricanes coach Al Golden isn't sticking around to soak up the rays of the Sunshine State. On Sunday, the University of Miami fired Golden as head football coach. Four days later, he put his South Miami, FL, house on the market for $1,990,000.
Golden, who held the head job at The U for four-and-a-half mediocre seasons, was let go after a disastrous 58-0 loss to the Clemson Tigers. Hopefully, the distinctively dressed coach will have better luck in the arena of real estate.
Golden's 5,758-square-foot home has plenty of curb appeal, but there are no interior shots of the home yet. Golden and his wife bought the Mediterranean-style house in 2011 for $1,775,000. The listing states the interior has been professionally remodeled, which may account for the $215,000 price increase. The six-bedroom spread sits on just under an acre of land, and the home's furnishings are also up for negotiation.
Maybe Golden and recently axed Dolphins coach Joe Philbin should get together to come up with a real estate sales game plan. After Philbin was fired earlier this month, he punted his South Florida house onto the market just two weeks later.
