WIth Lane Kiffin now in Tuscaloosa as Alabama's offensive coordinator, he needed to sell his Los Angeles-area house he lived in while he was coach of USC.
He found a buyer who is more famous than he is.
Per the Times, the house "features vaulted ceilings, a stone fireplace, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The three-car garage opens to a gated driveway" and "the half-acre lot has a swimming pool and spa, a guesthouse and an outdoor kitchen."Actor Vince Vaughn has purchased the house for $6.5 million according to the Los Angeles Times.
Kiffin listed the house in December for an asking price of just under $7 million.
You likely know Vaughn from "Old School" and "Wedding Crashers" and in case you're still somehow drawing a blank on who he is, here's his Yahoo Movies bio.
Kiffin was fired as the coach of the Trojans in September. After visiting with Nick Saban and his Alabama staff in December, Saban hired Kiffin to succeed offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier in January.
When he was visiting with Alabama to help "evaluate" the Tide's offense, Saban called him "a really good offensive coach."
He was dismissed from his duties at USC after the Trojans lost to Arizona State 62-41. A former offensive coordinator for USC who had head coaching stints with the Oakland Raiders and the University of Tennessee, Kiffin was 28-15 in over three seasons as USC's head coach.
No word on Kiffin's real estate transactions in Tuscaloosa, though we're guessing he can get a lot more for his money there.
