Former Xavier basketball coach Chris Mack sells Kentucky mansion

·2 min read

Chris Mack, former men’s basketball head coach at Xavier University and the University of Louisville, and his wife have sold their home in Prospect, Kentucky, for $3.55 million.

The 14-year-old mansion, located just outside of Louisville, includes six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. It was listed for $3.76 million in April. According to the Jefferson County Property Value Assessment office, the current assessed value of the property is about $3.29 million. So the sale was 8% over the PVA value.

Mack and his wife, Christi, bought the home for $3.1 million in June 2018, according to PVA records.

Mack did not respond to a call and a text seeking comment. He and his wife, Christi, had allowed the home to be featured as The Courier Journal's Home of the Week in February 2019, less than a year after he was hired to take over U of L's troubled basketball program.

Carrie King, co-owner and Realtor at Homepage Realty, which was not involved in the sale, said she was unsurprised by the sale price. “This home was custom built with luxury high-end finishes second to none,” she said. “With all of its amenities, location, construction and designer finishes, it does not surprise me that it sold for more than assessed value.”

The buyer was Castle Creek Properties I LLC, a Delaware Limited Liability Co.

“Oftentimes, buyers opt to put their home in an LLC for both privacy and to limit liability,” King said.

Mack led Xavier to eight NCAA Tournament appearances in his nine years at the helm of the program and won a program-record 11 games in the tournament.

After being suspended by U of L for the first six games of the 2021-2022 basketball season over his handling of an extortion case involving former assistant coach Dino Gaudio, Mack and the university reached a separation agreement. He will be paid $133,333.33 monthly through January 2025 under that deal.

While Mack may be out at the University of Louisville, it appears he will be sticking around the city. Mack and his wife, Christi, have a pending contract on a house in Hurstbourne Estate.

In March, U of L hired former Cardinal Kenny Payne as permanent head coach.
