San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich mansion — which he has owned since 2005 — has sold for $3 million.
Per Jack Flemming of the Los Angeles Times, Popovich bought the Texas home in 2005 a few months after guided the Spurs to its third title in franchise history. Popovich first put the mansion for sale in 2018 with a $4.5 million price tag. And in the summer, he scaled the price down to $3.1 million.
The 2.6-acre property is inside a gated neighborhood. Among the features of the 9,600-square-foot home is a swimming pool sheltered by trees, and a 600-square-foot wine cellar made of reclaimed Jerusalem stone secluded at the edge of the property. The mansion has four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a gym, and a billiards room.
Binkan Cinaroglu of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing. Ilissa Serena of Hance Realty represented the buyer.
Popovich has been with the Spurs for 24 years. He holds the longest active stretch of any U.S. major sports league. He holds third place in all-time coaching victories with 1,222. Don Nelson holds the number one spot with 1,335 followed by Lenny Wilkens with 1,332. Popovich is also tied with Nelson and Pat Riley for the most Coach of the Year Awards with three.
The 2019-20 season marks the end of the Spurs’ 22-year consecutive playoff appearances streak. This streak resulted in five titles: 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2014. Amid rumors of his imminent retirement, Gregg Popovich has not given any indication that he will step away from the game. Though he inked a three-year deal with the Spurs in 2019, reports reveal that he’s going to decide on his future on year-on-year basis.
