the old Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden quickly finds a buyer for his house in Las Vegas.
His custom residence landed on the market in early February for $7.5 million and is already awaiting sale.
Gruden and his wife, Cindy Grudenpicked up the property for $4.3 million in August 2021, two months before he resigned of the team.
The coach resigned midway through the 2021 season after reports surfaced that he had used racist and homophobic language in private emails.
After his resignation, Gruden sued the NFL and its commissioner, Roger Goodeland alleged his private emails were leaked “to harm [his] reputation and force him to quit his job.
After leaving his coveted coaching job in disgrace, 58-year-old Gruden doesn’t need a home in Sin City.
Built in 2020, the gated estate is located in the exclusive Southern Highland community. The enclave of around 1,000 homes surrounds the Southern Highlands Golf Club. This attractive neighborhood would also be the home of the team’s quarterback, Derek Carr.
Covering 8,684 square feet, the residence offers five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two powder rooms.
Details include high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling retractable glass walls, massive terraces, and mountain and city views. A great room opens to a chef’s kitchen and adjoins a family room that flows outdoors.
Highlights include an air-conditioned wine cellar and bar, a large office stocked with sports memorabilia, and a gym. The master bedroom includes two dressing rooms, a bathroom with double sinks and a personal sauna.
Outside, the nearly one acre lot features an infinity pool and spa, outdoor fire pit, built-in BBQ, and plunge pool bathroom.
If a buyer needs even more land, the listing indicates that the offer includes an adjacent lot of just under an acre.
Gruden was in his second stint as Raiders head coach. He was also the head coach of Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002 to 2008, and led that team to a Super Bowl victory in its first season. After seven seasons with the Bucs, he worked as an analyst for ESPN before joining the Raiders.
