Hewitt put the French country-style home up for sale with an asking price of $ 1,589,900.
The university, located in Fairfax, VA, hired Hewitt in 2011 on a contract that paid him about $ 750,000 per year, making him one of the state’s highest-paid employees, according to the Washington Post. But the past two seasons were a disaster for the Patriots, as they endured back-to-back 20-loss seasons for the first time in 22 years.
We’re not sure where Hewitt is going next, but he’s selling a sweet house. The five-bedroom home has rich hardwood floors throughout, vaulted ceilings, and a stunning curved staircase. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, and there’s a half-bathroom on the main floor.
The kitchen features plenty of cabinet space and granite countertops. Off the kitchen is a formal dining room, which is adjacent to the living room, which has a stone fireplace. There’s a wood-paneled office with built-in bookshelves. Upstairs there’s a large master bath with a walk-in shower, double vanities, and a spa tub.
Outside, there’s a patio set amid the lush landscaping. Downstairs, there’s a carpeted game room and a second living room, which also has a fireplace.
Hewitt purchased the 6,200-square-foot home in May 2012 for $ 1.55 million.
Wherever he decides to go next, he probably won’t have money woes. Before George Mason, Hewitt was head coach at Georgia Tech for 11 years before being fired in 2011. According to ESPN, Hewitt reportedly received $ 7.2 million from Georgia Tech when it bought out his contract.
During his four years as head coach at George Mason, the Patriots went 66-67 overall, with an abysmal 9-22 record in the 2014–15 season.
