University of Minnesota basketball coach Richard Pitino, under contract for several more years, recently locked up the purchase of a home in the Twin Cities.
Richard and Jill Pitino sealed the deal in October on a home in Edina’s Parkwood Knolls neighborhood for $2.25 million, according to recently updated property records. It had been listed for a touch under $2.4 million.
The home for the couple and their three children has 7,762 square feet of living space, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a sport court, exercise room, theater room, a three-car garage and three fireplaces, according to the Realtor’s listing. The property’s proposed taxes for 2018 top $25,000.
The Pitinos’ previous home was in the same neighborhood, measuring just shy of 5,000 square feet of living space.
Pitino is making $1.7 million this season. He signed a one-year extension through 2021-22 on April 7.
The 35-year-old Pitino has his Gophers off to a strong start, and they are ranked 14th in the latest Associated Press national poll.
