Former University of Oregon football coach Mark Helfrich has packed his bags for Chicago, but he just took care of some unfinished business closer to home.
Helfrich last week sold the 7,400-square-foot Coburg Hills mansion completed about a year ago for him and his wife, Megan, and their children, according to a deed filed in Lane County.
The sale price was $2.4 million. The buyers are Aaron and Kelly Thomas, according to the deed.
The Helfrichs applied for a permit to build the Diamond Ridge Loop house in mid-2015, when he was firmly entrenched as the UO football coach and fresh off a season that saw the team make the national championship game. But the program suffered two disappointing seasons, and Helfrich was fired after the 2016 season.
After working as a college football analyst for Fox Sports last year, Helfrich was hired in January to coach the offense for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League.
Located on the east side of Interstate 5 near Coburg, the gated, 28-lot Diamond Ridge subdivision is lined with some of the largest and most expensive houses in Lane County.
The two-story house the Helfrichs sold includes four bedrooms, six bathrooms and indoor sports courts on 10 acres, according to county property records. The 2015 permit also detailed plans for a large workshop and swimming pool on the property.
The Helfrichs bought the lot in 2014 for $425,000, county records show. They sold a house in northeast Eugene early last year, about the time construction of their Diamond Ridge Loop house ended.
The property has an estimated market value of $1.7 million, according to Lane County Assessment and Taxation figures.
