Tom Herman let Houston down. Tom Herman’s biggest letdown is his defense. Tom Herman beat Oklahoma — let him live. Just a few talking points for a new owner to draw up when hosting watch parties at the University of Texas football coach’s former home, which is now for sale in a tony Bellaire neighborhood.

Herman’s former dwelling on 5221 Pine St. is nestled in Bellaire’s sought-after Braeburn Country Club Estates. The white brick, traditional 2004 Bellaire Showcase home, offered by John Daugherty, Realtors for $2.045 million, was remodeled in 2016 after Herman sold it and sits on an 18,900-square-foot lot.

Herman purchased the home in 2015, updated it, and sold it in June 2017; it was barely on the market for a month. The next owners repainted the exterior (from red brick), interior, and added extra amenities. The home has only been on the market since mid-October. 

“This home offers one of the larger lots in Bellaire,” says Lisa Kornhauser of John Daugherty, Realtors. “Interest has been great in this short amount of time. With its premiere location, the oversized lot, and unique amenities, this won’t last long on the market. It shows beautifully.”

The house boasts five bedrooms (with first-floor master), a two-story living room, a large library, and spacious dining room, according to the listing. “The oversized study with a sitting area, along with a formal dining connected to a formal living room, allows for wonderful entertaining areas,” notes Kornhauser. A second-story “flex” room offers a chance for a fitness center.

MLB.com's Brian McTaggart says the deal is for $6.5 million in 2021 with a club option for 2022 for $8 million, according to a source with knowledge of the negotiation. Yahoo is reporting the numbers are slightly different.

Gurriel has struggled with the bat this season like many of his teammates. He hit .232 with 6 home runs and drove in 32 runs this year.
