Former Steelers coach Bill Cowher sells his NC home

Former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher had a winning track record in his 15-year coaching career, but the N.C. State University alum didn’t have as much luck in the Raleigh real estate market.

In August, Cowher sold his 6,500-square-foot mansion that backs up to the Oaks at North Ridge Country Club for $1.845 million, after initially listing the home in April for nearly $2.4 million.

The price tag doesn’t come close to the investment that the football coach pumped into the home.

In January 2007, a week after announcing his retirement, Cowher paid more than $1 million for a sizable house overlooking the golf course green. Then, he promptly tore down the home, building in its place the current estate, which has four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a four-car garage and a dog spa, among other luxury features.
