Ex-Raiders coach Jon Gruden finds buyer for Las Vegas mansion

Ex-Raiders coach Jon Gruden has found a buyer for his suburban Las Vegas mansion.

And amid the heated real estate market, it took less than two weeks to sell.

Gruden and his wife, Cindy, listed their two-story, 8,684-square-foot house and nearly 1-acre lot next door in Southern Highlands on Feb. 9 for $7.5 million and apparently went under contract with a buyer on Feb. 18, according to listing site Zillow.

The sale is still pending.

Listing broker Heidi Holly, owner of real estate firm Lifestyle LV, told the Review-Journal on Tuesday that she expects the deal to close at the end of March.

She declined to disclose the sales price.

According to listing materials, the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom house at 64 Olympia Canyon Way features retractable floor-to-ceiling glass walls, a climate-controlled wine room, a sauna, an infinity-edge pool and spa, and a full gym with mirrors.

Three formal offers were made, and other people asked to be on a waiting list in case the sale fell through, according to Holly.

Gruden landed a 10-year, $100 million contract with the Raiders in 2018, two years before the pro football team moved to Las Vegas from Oakland, California.

He and his wife bought the still-empty lot in Southern Highlands in August 2019 for $750,000 and closed their $4.3 million purchase of the house next door last August, property records show.

Gruden resigned as coach of the Raiders in October in the wake of news reports detailing his use of racist, misogynistic and homophobic comments in emails over the years.
