Connor Stalions has acquired one more sign: ‘For Sale.’
Stalions’ Ann Arbor-area home—which became its own subplot in the larger drama surrounding the ex-Michigan football analyst—went on the market Friday, according to public real estate records.
The four-bedroom home in Scio Township, Mich., is listed for $525,000. It’s unclear if that’s a steal: Stalions originally purchased the place in 2022 for $485,000.
While the property’s MLS listing showed it as being bank-owned, listing agent Kevin Kast insisted that the home was not in foreclosure. Aside from confirming the home was for sale, Kast declined to provide additional details, and Stalions’ attorney did not respond to an email seeking comment.
Scio Township records show that there were no delinquent taxes associated with the property through the end of 2022.
The enigmatic Stalions became a household name as the central figure in the Michigan sign-stealing scandal that led to former head coach Jim Harbaugh being suspended for three game by the Big Ten Conference. Harbaugh maintained all along that he had no knowledge of Stalions’ activities.
A retired Marine Corps captain, Stalions initially entered the national dialogue in October, when an ESPN report identified him as the person of interest in an NCAA investigation into a sign-stealing operation against future UM opponents.
Over the ensuing fortnight, journalists and college football sleuths began digging into Stalions’ sparse public record Internet profile. One avenue of intrigue, as the Wall Street Journal first reported, was that Stalions had previously been sued by his homeowners association for violating its rules by operating a business out of residence, after numerous vacuum cleaners began accumulating on his front porch.
Stalions, who represented himself at the trial, argued that the suit was brought by Michigan State supporters who were biased against military veterans and the Michigan football program. A judge eventually issued a default judgment in favor of the HOA, ordering Stalions to pay legal fees and cease his business activities.
Stalions, who reportedly refused to cooperate with investigations into his actions, resigned from his $55,000-per-year position with the Wolverines in November. After Michigan won this year’s College Football Playoff national championship, Stalions reactivated his long-dormant account on X, formerly known as Twitter, to tweet out a triumphant GIF.
