    TBOW is moving on Up

    Not bad... but Hell-Ay is still Hell-Ay

    https://www.dirt.com/gallery/athlete...es-1203462291/



    Buyer Lincoln & Caitlin Riley
    Location Palos Verdes Estates, Calif.
    Price$17.2 million
    2006
    Specs13,032 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms
    Lot Size3.17 acres

    Lincoln Riley has traded in his Stetson for a surfboard! The former Oklahoma football coach — now coldly referred to by many seemingly cast-aside fans as “TBOW,” or “That B—- Out West” — has officially decamped the Sooner State for the Golden State, having recently assumed the helm as the newest head football coach for the USC Trojans.

    Riley, 38, led the Sooners for five seasons, from 2017-2021. During his tenure, the Texas native snagged four Big 12 titles and three appearances in the College Football Playoffs, and was named “Big 12 Coach of the Year” in 2018.

    Now he’s not only switching up conferences, moving to the Pac-12, but Riley is also in the process of selling not one but two Oklahoma houses; and he’s already used some of the funds from what’s been widely reported as a hefty $110 million contract to scoop up a snazzy West Coast outpost south of Los Angeles, along the Palos Verdes Peninsula.



    Property records show Riley — projected to be the highest-paid college football coach of the 2022 season, topping Alabama’s Nick Saban — doled out nearly $17.2 million for his newly acquired mansion, knocking a notable $2.4 million off the original $19.5 million asking price. Regarding his two former homes in the college town of Norman, Okla., one has already been sold and another is currently listed for just under $2 million.

    As for the coach’s new L.A.-area home, the historic Spanish Revival-style residence is known as the “Roessler Estate,” and was the onetime home of Fred Roessler, the first mayor of Palos Verdes Estates. Built in the 1920s for Donald Lawyer, sales manager of the Palos Verdes Project, the original John Byers-designed property underwent an extensive reconstruction and expansion over three years, from 2003-2006, by its most recent owners, businessman Jose Colloza and his wife Brigitte, who worked with architect George Shaw of Edward Carson Beall & Associates to retain its classic style while incorporating modern luxuries.

    Chris Adlam of Vista Sotheby’s International Realty served as the listing agent; Allie Joel Riley of Compass repped Riley.

    Nestled on gated, 3.17-acre bluff overlooking the ocean, in the affluent Palos Verdes Estates enclave, the stucco and terracotta-roof structure is fronted by a circular motorcourt, and then double Old World-style doors open to an enclosed courtyard crowned by a tiered fountain.

    Once inside, seven bedrooms and 12 baths are spread across over 13,000 square feet of living space on two levels punctuated throughout with rich hardwood floors, wood-beam ceilings, custom murals, vintage light fixtures and seamless indoor-outdoor environs.

    In addition to a 790-square-foot, one-bedroom detached guesthouse and five-car garage, other glitzy amenities include an elevator, seven fireplaces, a movie theater, tennis court, putting green, sauna and steam rooms, a 600-bottle wine room and a generator, plus picturesque ocean and coastline views from almost every vantage point.

    Especially standing out are the home’s original dining room, living room and sunroom.

    A winding wrought-iron staircase heads upstairs, where a sumptuous master retreat is decked out with a fireside seating area and custom showroom-style closet. A luxe spa-inspired bath boasts dual vanities, a soaking tub and glass-encased shower.

    Scoring the go-ahead touchdown? The lush resort-like grounds, which feature an expansive terrace, a large grassy lawn, secret gardens, a pool and spa, several al fresco dining areas and an outdoor kitchen sporting a built-in barbecue.

        Not too shabby. Californ-y is a beautiful place, no doubt about it.

          It’s what I called months ago. He will have a place in RPV close
          to a heliport and there’s a heliport on the usc campus.

                    Someone needs to explain to me why the fuck anyone needs a fireplace in So. Ca.. I spent 75% of my 24 years in the military in Ca. and not once did I feel the need to have a fire place in any of my homes. Must be one of those I gots to have it even if I don't need it features.

                        That is a stunning place. No question about it. It is probably even worth the $17 million, but holy hell that's a lot of money. That's more than 1 1/2 years of salary and a long term property tax thorn in his side. His $2m house in Norman was, what, a third of his yearly salary?

                          It's all relative I guess. How many x our annual salary are our homes? He probably needs a small loan to re-do some of that interior though, woof.

                            College football has gone insane: $17 million palaces; $100 million contracts; helicopter commutes. On the bright side, it looks like "TBOW" has officially entered the lexicon.

                              Super nice house. The comparisons are funny though. Yeah, his Norman house didn’t look like that because he spent like 8x as much out there. Would’ve thought the old Muleshoe boy would like the ranch that $17M would buy you in Oklahoma, but some would say he’s changed a little.

                              45 minute commute to USC in the middle of the day. I’d check it at rush hour, but he better be working 16-hour days if he wants to go to a bowl with that team.

                                  He can just take the 110 to campus. Should only take about 45. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCer2e0t8r8

                                    Riley’s net worth somewhere around $20-30MM. That’s a lot damn money but not buying a $17MM money. Even if he pockets the full $110MM (50ish after tax) I don’t see any reasonable finance team saying that’s a good Riley, unless some rich donors for a private college agree to buy it for you.

                                      For all those that remember Rockford Files, with Norman's own, his office was in Palos Verdes. Also, where Marineland was located. Tiger Woods' car wreck occurred driving down the hill from PVE,RPV, and Rolling Hills. I think it was on Crenshaw?

                                          Newbie got taken. I bought in that neighborhood and even looked at that house. I found something bigger and nicer with better views for a several $M less.

                                            As I recall USC was going "to buy him a house". Question is, does USC own the house or TBOW?

                                                  Pretty sure they named a $ amount - something like $6MM?? I saw that somewhere on the innerwebs...

                                                  So he's paying $11MM.

                                                    He's gotta put his money somewhere. It's his to spend, so I don't begrudge him (or anyone else) who buys something like that. Now, should he be making enough money to buy it? That's a whole nother topic.

                                                        https://www.heartlandcollegesports.c...t%20Hefner%20V.

                                                        So he's paying $11MM.
                                                        None of the info about his houses was accurate. He bought this with his money and USC didn’t buy either of his homes in Norman. They had both houses sold to the same person but it fell through. Have the big one sold and getting close on the smaller one.

                                                            It's hard to believe any sane grown up would leave Norman for a place like that..Definitely a step down in status. His parents are probably ashamed to let anyone know he's their son.

I hope to be rich someday. But if that happens, I hope I don't spend that much money on a house that could provide living space for 15 people when it's just me and my wife. I'd rather have a really nice smaller house with a yacht. LOL.

                                                                                  It is unbelievable that the real estate industry (fueled by the dipshits at HGTV) have started literally dumping the long-held term, "master bedroom," for "primary" or "main" bedroom. That's actually a thing now. What kind of dingaling actually thought "master" was offensive? Goodness gracious.

                                                                                  On a lighter note, the house will have a stand-up shower. He will no longer have to lay down to take a shower. Plus, an eat-in kitchen. Previously, you could not actually eat in your kitchen.
