  • HOG HEAVEN: Ousted coach Bret Bielema says goodbye to Fayetteville estate.

Bret Bielema, canned as coach of the Hogs last year after an ignominious five-year run, has put his palatial Fayetteville estate on sale for $1.975 million.

Bielema and his family bought the property in 2013 for $1.5 million.

From the listing on realtor.com (which includes more photos for the curious):

Magnificent two level European style Estate on 2 acres in Bridgewater. Beautiful details and spacious living in one of Fayetteville’s finest homes. This outstanding 6309 square foot Manor features a circular drive with 5 garages, 2 fireplaces, 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, gourmet kitchen, wet bar, exercise room, heated saltwater pool, family inspired outdoor kitchen, landscaping and many more amenities!
The Razorback Foundation announced in January that Bielema could be paid nearly $12 million as part of a severance package, paid out in monthly installments of up to $320,833.33 (before reductions or withholdings) through 2020. That package would be offset if Bielema gets income from a new job; currently unemployed, he's done some TV appearances and some gigs as a representative of the NFL's New England Patriots at scouting events. Even if he lands a big job, the Foundation will still be liable for a minimum payment of $150,000 each year. 

No word on where he's moving, but there's a little internet speculation that he might land a permanent role of some kind with the Patriots organization. Such a move would represent a change of pace for the Pats, known for hiring highly competent staff.
