Former Florida head coach sold his house in Gainesville for $1.4 million, $400,000 less than he paid for it in May 2015. Per

McElwain sold his 11,000-square-foot home in Gainesville in late January for $1.4 million, $400,000 less than he paid for it in May 2015. The house was McElwain's final tie to the area.

Florida and McElwain parted ways in late October following a tumultuous week that started with the coach alleging family members received death threats and ended with a 42-7 loss to Southeastern Conference rival Georgia.

He needed the large house to take in all of those Hurricane evacuees in October of 2016.

I dont understand having a big arse house unless you have a huge family. Live on some water, have cool toys. Most of the time these huge houses look terrible

completely agree. Hell, the vast majority of the time you live in the kitchen and den/living room. I understand he probably needs to live in a gated community (where the houses are large) but 11,000 sq ft?? That's just plain silly, he only has 3 kids, but they were all out of the house when he took the Florida job.

I think kids refer to baby goats. If he had 3 half breed sharks not sure what you call them especially if they inherited the yellow teeth.

Who cares? This is a dumb story. It has nothing to do with marine animal sexual relations.

So he is about as good of an investor as he is a talker.

Location, location, location. He should have bought in Ocala.

My question is: Why does anyone need an 11,000 sq ft home? Nothing but greed.
