The moon in and around Coral Gables is ‘The U is BACK’ after the hiring of new head coach Mario Cristobal on December 6th of last year. Cristobal immediately locked up job security and secured the bag when he signed a 10-year, $80 million contract.

When Mario Cristobal signed his $80 million contract with the Miami Hurricanes he immediately became one of the highest-paid coaches in college football. His $8 million/year salary has him ranked as the 7th highest-paid coach in the land, sandwiched between TAMU’s Jimbo Fisher ($7.5M/yr) and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney ($8.370M). That is a LOT of money for a coach who has only ever won a single New Year’s Six Bowl Game, the 2019 Rose Bowl with Oregon.

What exactly does Miami‘s newest multi-millionaire resident spend his millions on? Real estate, of course. Mario Cristobal recently purchased a mansion near Coral Gables for $7.9 million. It’s just down the street from the homes of Alex Rodriguez and the Miami Heat’s Jimmy Butler.

The sprawling mansion features 8,800 square feet of living space, six bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a private gym, a secluded courtyard, pool, jacuzzi, stunning marble flooring, and a whole lot more according to a report last week from reporter Katherine Kallergis at The Real Deal. Let’s check out Mario’s new digs.

Mario Cristobal Just Dropped Nearly $8 Million On This Miami Mansion

You can find the Zillow listing of the mansion here with tons of stunning photos to check out.

Here’s what Canes fans had to say about their head coach making a massive purchase…

It is only a 2.1-mile drive from his house to the Miami Hurricanes’ practice facilities which seems close but with the right traffic that could be an hour-long drive. So it’s probably best for Mario Cristobal to invest in a nice bicycle now or a golf cart that he can take on the sidewalks and flash his Hurricanes badge if anyone complains.

This year marked the 48th consecutive year that a Miami Hurricanes player was drafted to the NFL when DT Jonathan Ford was taken by the Green Bay Packers in the 7th Round with the 234th overall pick. Ford was the only Hurricanes player drafted this year.

Mario Cristobal and the Miami Hurricanes currently have the 16th ranked recruiting class for 2022 so there is a LOT of work to do if he plans to get The U back to early 1990s and early 2000s levels of success.
