Crunch! Chicago Bears Coach Lists Mansion for $3.4 Million

In an off-season move, and after camping out only 10 months, Head Coach Marc Trestman and wife decide to sell.

We've noticed lots of real estate movement on the celebrity front, from Oprah to Michael Jordan. Add the Chicago Bears' Marc Trestman, who, last year, blazed into town riding a mighty NFL comet full of fiery hope and hype to lead the Bears to pigskin glory. (That's the way they talk around these parts. A combination of beer-fueled bravado soaked in football mythology.) 

And to play fair, Trestman did bring some stats to reckon with as one of only four Bears coaches to win their maiden game. People were bowing down by week 15: his eight wins knocked on the heavenly 1956 record (nine) for a first year coach. But before all that camera time the man needed some slick digs and settled with his wife in this 6-bedroom, 5,200-square-foot Winnetka mansion. It suited up just fine. Until it didn't.

Ten months later, Trestman and wife Cindy want out. Ten months. Not to be contradictory or point out a smirky irony, but this coach is the one and same author of the motivational book  Perseverance: Life Lessons on Leadership and Teamwork, wherein he preaches tough love tactics for, you know, persevering.  Ah, but perhaps what felt like a dream house was an infatuation. Real estate agent Milena Birov of @properties reports that, "The house works well for them," they just want something bigger. 

It's a new, upscale construction, 18 miles from downtown Chicago on a 0.33-acre lot and built by Heritage Luxury Brothers, a company with over 100 custom residences in Winnetka. The listing price is hiked over half a million — $550,000 — above the 2013 summer purchase of $2.937 million. Nice perks though, including a third floor loft space, home theater, wine cellar (always a plus), Cherry wood library and a sport court built for champions-in-the-making. 

The couple is house hunting, so it looks like Trestman is in for the haul. Right?

Asking $3.495 million. Check out the Zillow listing.
