Alabama AD Bill Battle Unloading Georgia Mansion – $2.5 Million [PHOTOS]


New Alabama Athletic Director Bill Battle doesn’t have much use for his Atlanta house now that he’s busy keeping Bama on top of the college sports world. According to our friends at Realtor, Battle is unloading his 7,500 sq. ft. house for only $2,500,000.

Battle is a former player and coach under Bear Bryant who went on to coach Tennessee before entering the private sector where he did pretty good in the money-making department. Bill stepped into the AD roll when Mal Moore became too ill to continue in the position. Moore passed away in March.
