Robyn Dixon’s husband, Juan Dixon, has been fired from his role as head coach of Coppin State University’s basketball team.
Juan was absent from RHOP‘s reunion in 2023. He and Robyn’s relationship came under fire during The Real Housewives of Potomac season 7 as rumors circulated that he had cheated during their marriage.
In February 2023, Juan was spotted at a laundromat with a colleague which resulted in more cheating allegations swirling. However, his colleague took to social media to tell people to “get a life,” amid the cheating claims.
Juan’s firing news comes after Robyn was reportedly ‘fired’ from RHOP in 2023.
