The newly appointed Razorbacks coach, John Calipari, purchases a mansion valued at $2.2 million.

The new head coach of the Razorbacks recently bought a $2.2 million home in the Clear Creek area, as per property records. This gated community, situated approximately 5.5 miles north of the University of Arkansas campus near Blessings Golf Club, boasts a 7,350-square-foot residence with five bedrooms. The house offers scenic views overlooking the 10th and 11th fairways of the golf club, originally constructed in 2006 and subsequently renovated by the Goddard Design Group.

John Calipari, who signed a lucrative five-year contract worth $7.5 million annually plus bonuses with the Razorbacks in April, becomes the latest prominent figure to reside in this prestigious neighborhood. Prior to joining Arkansas, Calipari amassed a remarkable coaching record at the University of Kentucky, including over 400 wins, four Final Four appearances, and a national championship over his 15-year tenure.

Interestingly, Calipari’s decision to settle in Clear Creek marks a departure from the tradition of Arkansas coaches purchasing homes in the upscale Bridgewater Estates, where previous coaches like Dave Van Horn, Sam Pittman, and others have lived. Eric Musselman, the former Razorbacks basketball coach who recently moved on to USC, was the first in many years to opt for a home in Clear Creek. Musselman’s former residence, currently listed at $3.25 million, is conveniently located near Calipari’s new abode.
