Jim Caldwell, recently dismissed as head coach of the Detroit Lions, is also departing his Michigan home. The custom estate in Oakland County is on the market for $2.5 million.
The 63-year-old had coached the Lions since 2014, and despite having a winning record, he was let go by general manager Bob Quinn. Quinn said he wanted to replace Caldwell with someone who will bring “a change in leadership, a new voice.”
Caldwell’s home is certainly a winner. Built in 2012, the 8,566-square-foot home has five bedrooms, five baths, and two half-baths. The home sits on a 1.27-acre lot.
The Wisconsin native bought the residence for $2.1 million in 2014, just months after he accepted the Lions coaching position.
The home features plenty of space to entertain on game day. Once you enter the grand two-story foyer, you can take in the detailed millwork, walnut flooring, natural stone finishes, and wood-beamed ceilings.
The public spaces include a formal dining room, sitting room, and family room with french doors and stone fireplace. The chef’s kitchen is appointed with double islands, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and a breakfast nook.
There are two offices, and the lower level features a sport court, game room, rec area, and kitchen with bar and dining area. Outdoors you’ll find a deck, a heated four-car garage, and an elevator. Renee Lossia Acho holds the listing.
Before joining the Lions, Caldwell coached football at Wake Forest University, from 1993 to 2000. He was also head coach of the Indianapolis Colts from 2009 to 2011. He earned two Super Bowl rings as an assistant coach.
