Is Wayne Hills Coach Olsen Looking To Leave Wayne?

Coach's five-bedroom house is up for sale as deadline looms.

Revered Wayne Hills football coach Chris Olsen has put his family's Foxboro Road home up for sale, as the eight-time state champ faces a deadline to decide whether to remain coach or athletic director.

The house, which was built in 1998 and is in the Point View Estates section of town, has an asking price of nearly $740,000.

Olsen did not return messages seeking comment.

The Board of Education approved a policy in January prohibiting administrators and supervisors from coaching sports teams or acting as advisors of any district athletic, co-curricular or extra-curricular program.

Olsen must decide by July 1 which position -- if any -- he wants to keep.

His son, Kevin, who quaterbacks the Hills team and has been recruited by some of the top college football programs in the country, has said that he would not play his senior season if his “father, coach and best friend” is not coaching.

The Board after nine football players were .

Olsen has received criticism for not suspending the players for the first two rounds of the state sectional playoffs last year. Dozens of people, however, expressed their support for Olsen to retain both titles .

“It’s a well-maintained home with a gorgeous view in a popular section of town,” said realtor Bob Lindsay said. He declined further comment.

According to a listing on Lindsay’s website, the house is a five-bedroom colonial with an elevated deck, master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi, and a finished basement with a recreation room. Pictures of the house’s interior show several football jerseys hanging in one of the bedrooms and in the recreation room.

Very well put Scondo..A thank you would be nice, a pedestal wouldn't be. Lets move on and let the coach move on as well to South Carolina. Perhaps they have different rules there that are more to his style and needs..

Why would it affect the sale negotiation? I wouldn't worry about that.
