UB football coach Lance Leipold recently paid $820,000 for this home in Clarence’s Spaulding Green subdivision.

University at Buffalo head football coach Lance Leipold got a new contract in February, and now he has a new home in Clarence, too.

Leipold and his wife, Kelly, paid $820,000 to buy the property on Glenview Drive in the Spaulding Green development from Mark Karrer, owner of M-Power Sales, and his wife, Barbara, public records show. The Karrers have owned the home for 2½ years, Mark Karrer said, but now they’re building a house on 9 acres in East Aurora.

The 3,780-square-foot Glenview Drive home, built in 2015, has four bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms and was listed by Howard Hanna’s Carol Esposito. Mark Karrer said the new owners should appreciate the open-space layout of the family room, kitchen and living room, large walk-in closets, finished basement and views of the backyard pond.

    A team is supposed to get better as the year goes on but last year the UB football team seemed to get worse.

    The last 4 games were hard to watch with too many broken plays and Jackson running around like a Pop Warner QB.  By the last game of the year Jackson should be firmly in the pocket throwing the ball within 3-6 seconds not running all over the field hoping that his receivers can make something out of their broken patterns. I don’t know what was being called in the huddle but the results looked like “I’ll take the snap, run around for 10 seconds, and you guys try to get in the open.”

    The offensive line was good but how can you expect them not to tire quickly from running all over the place. That type of offense certainly won’t work in the Red Zone when the field shortens and UB ended up 9th in Red Zone Offense.

    UB had some serious talent this year but the coaching staff doesn’t seem able to get this team to the next level. This team had 2 solid freshman running backs with Marks and Patterson plus 3 top receivers of Johnson, Osborn and Mabry. All led by a future NFL QB. That’s great talent and with that balance UB should have worn down any defense thrown at them. They should have been a ball control nightmare but they always looked disorganized with poor offensive discipline going for the bomb. 

    Halftime and in-game strategy adjustments just weren’t there and UB coaching was badly exposed in the Army and Ohio games. The 2nd half of the N Illinois and Troy games weren’t too pretty either.

    So UB ended up 4th in rushing offense and 6th in passing offense. How can that happen with all the great players they had? Ten wins is great but it covers up many mistakes and it will be a long time before we see that much talent on one team again. Talent that was mismanaged.

    Coach Leipold was a long shot coming from DIII and UB was probably right to give him a chance but the contract extension was not in the best interest of UB Football.
