Former University of Texas men’s basketball coach Chris Beard is leaving Austin, TX, behind.
He’s selling his four-bedroom, 4.5-bath, 4,000-square-foot home in the capital city for $4,950,000.
The listing follows his December arrest on a domestic family violence charge, after an argument with his fiancé. The school immediately suspended Beard without pay and eventually fired him in early January. And because his termination stemmed from a felony charge, the school won’t have to pay out the more than $25 million left on his contract.
Sitting on a quarter-acre lot, the home is located in the desirable Tarrytown neighborhood. It’s an area filled with trees, plenty of shopping, and proximity to a golf course. Located on a leafy corner parcel, interior details of the luxe home include oak floors, freshly painted white walls, and a limestone fireplace.
An open floor plan knits the living and dining spaces together with the kitchen, while glass doors open to a private backyard and patio. The main bedroom suite is conveniently placed on the main floor, offering a quiet retreat toward the home’s rear. Two walk-in closets and a skylit bath with a large soaker tub are among the primary bedroom’s amenities.
A bonus room is on the second floor, along with space for a home office. Outside, a refreshing pool awaits, with a large lawn for relaxing under oak and pecan trees.
At the time of his arrest, Beard was in the second year of a seven-year contract with the university. Prior to being hired by the Longhorns, he was a successful head coach at Texas Tech for five seasons.
