The Sooner, the Better? Bob Stoops Selling His Chicago Home

Peter G. Aiken/Getty ImagesRecently retired University of Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops is selling his graystone mansion on Chicago’s Gold Coast, according to the Chicago Tribune. The list price: $2,695,000.
The five-bedroom, 3,495-square-foot home, about a block from Lake Michigan, was built in 1887 and features high ceilings and large windows.
The eat-in kitchen comes with a large island, fireplace (one of five in the home), and french doors leading to a balcony overlooking a stone patio.

Stoops’ Chicago real estate adventures fueled speculation he was angling for a coaching job in Chicago, perhaps with the Bears. But that’s not so, Stoops told Tulsa Sports Animal Radio.
“That’s a simple deal,” Stoops said of his recent Windy City transactions. “I got (a house) that fits our style and … our family better, and I’m going to sell the other one. I’m not looking to coach in Chicago.”
Stoops, 56, coached the Sooner football team for 18 seasons, leading the team to a 2000 Orange Bowl win and a BCS National Championship. He stunned the college football world in June when he announced his retirement from the Sooner sideline.
