Whereas UCLA’s Jim Mora is just beginning the process of selling his home in Yarrow Point, Wash., USC’s Steve Sarkisian has already parted ways with his King County property.
The Trojans head coach sold his house, also found across Lake Washington in Yarrow Point, for $3.5 million earlier this year. Sarkisian and his wife, Stephanie, paid $3.35 million for the property in May 2009 -- nearly six months after the coach left Southern California to take over as head football coach at Washington.
The gated home, built in 2008, is found no less than three blocks away from Mora’s property on nearly a half-acre. Spanning two floors, its 5,516 square feet of living space includes a chef’s kitchen, a wood-paneled library/study, a home theater, a recreation room, five bedrooms, two full bathrooms and three half-baths.
Sarkisian, 40, led the Huskies to a 34-29 record and four bowl games in five seasons at Washington. He agreed to return to Southern California as the head football coach of the Trojans in December.
