Former Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks has listed his sprawling suburban home in Chandler, AZ, for $2.65 million.

After just a single season and three victories with the Cards—the NFL’s worst record last season—Wilks was relieved of his duties in the desert. Headed to Cleveland as the Browns‘ new offensive coordinator, he no longer needs an abode in Arizona.

Built in 2014 on a half-acre lot in a gated community, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom, 5,800-square-foot home is loaded with luxurious amenities. There’s a wine room, designer lighting, custom millwork throughout, marble in the main bathroom with steam shower, game room, and dual master suite closets.

The living and entertaining area extends beyond the bounds of the house with spacious covered porches, an outdoor kitchen, a saltwater pool, spa, and sport court. If you need a place to store your automobiles, a four-car garage offers ample space.

Wilks and his wife purchased the elegant and stylish ranch-style house just 11 months ago for $2.4 million. The couple invested in several big-ticket upgrades, including the new custom kitchen and wide-plank flooring, according to the listing.

Although his tenure in the desert was brief, it was lucrative. On his way out the door, the Cardinals bought out the remaining three years on Wilks’ contract, netting him a nice payday.

When the opportunity to coach in Cleveland came his way, Wilks told the Arizona Republic, he didn’t hesitate to take the job.

He didn’t have the on-field success he’d hoped for, but the coach leaves Arizona behind with an increase to his bottom line. Not bad for a year’s work.
