Joe Philbin, former head coach of the Miami Dolphins, pulled his house in Davie off the market after cutting the asking price twice.

He listed the 10,000-square-foot residence for sale for $2.5 million in October 2015 just hours after Dolphins owner Stephen Ross fired him as the football team’s head coach.

Now an assistant coach for the Indianapolis Colts, Philbin cut the asking price for his Davie house to $2.37 million and then $2.27 million before he pulled it off the market. also reported that Philbin plans to wait several months before listing the house for sale again.

The six-bedroom, seven-bathroom residence at 2232 Phoenix Avenue in Davie is located in a gated community called Northstar Estates, about six miles from the Dolphins’ training facility in Davie.

Philbin and his wife Diane bought the home in 2012 for $1.78 million. The Davie property features a media room, a library and a separate one-bedroom guest house.
