Two college football coaches with connections to the University of Washington are using the offseason make some big plays in the Los Angeles real-estate market.

Whereas UCLA’s Jim Mora — a former Husky player and assistant coach — is just beginning the process of selling his home in Yarrow Point on Lake Washington, Steve Sarkisian, who left his post as the Huskies head coach to take over the program at USC, has already parted ways with his property located just down the street.

Sarkisian sold his house recently for $3.5 million. He paid $3.35 million for the property in May 2009 — nearly six months after the coach left Southern California to take over as head football coach at Washington.

Built in 2008, the gated home is about three blocks away from Mora’s property on nearly half an acre. Sarkisian’s two-story house includes a chef’s kitchen, a wood-paneled library/study, a home theater, a recreation room, five bedrooms, two full bathrooms and three half-baths in 5,516 square feet of living space.
