NFL player-turned-ad man Don Coleman lists Murray Hill pad for $3M

Don Coleman, a former linebacker for the New Orleans Saints and the New York Jets, and his wife Jo Coleman have listed an apartment they own at 45 Park Avenue for $2.695 million, per StreetEasy records.

Coleman played in the NFL from 1974-1978, when he quit due to injuries. After that, he worked in advertising and started his own advertising firm GlobalHue in 1988. The firm attempted to hire people from different races and backgrounds, and billed itself as a multicultural agency. Among the more famous ads they made was an ad for Chrysler that cast Bob Dylan. A class action lawsuit filed by top executives at GlobalHue in August 2016 claimed that Coleman had not paid them since March.

The 1,477-square-foot apartment has two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, nine-foot windows, Juliette balconies and comes with access to the building’s fitness center and landscaped terrace. The Colemans paid $800,000 for the apartment in 2011.
