Lincoln Riley buys massive $17.2 million mansion with ocean views

Lincoln Riley does Fight On sign

Lincoln Riley is living large in Los Angeles.

Riley shocked the college football world in November when he left Oklahoma to take the USC job. The Trojans handled the process in stealth fashion, as nobody knew Riley was headed there.

Riley chose to leave Oklahoma for USC in part because the Sooners were heading to the SEC, while USC is in the weaker Pac-12. Not only that, but the opportunity to coach and live in Los Angeles was very attractive to Riley. He was paid huge money by the Trojans, and he also bought one heck of a house. reported on Tuesday that Riley paid $17.2 million for a 13,000 square foot mansion in Palos Verdes, Calif. The mansion is a historic Spanish Revival-style residence known as the “Roessler Estate,” named after Fred Roessler, the first mayor of Palos Verdes. It contains seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.

The mansion overlooks the ocean and includes “an elevator, seven fireplaces, a movie theater, tennis court, putting green, sauna and steam rooms, a 600-bottle wine room and a generator.”

Here is a video of the property:

Riley got a massive contract from USC and the house to match.

With a property like that, who would ever want to leave the house?
