Juan Dixon won't return as Coppin State coach

Juan Dixon is out as the basketball coach at Coppin State.

Dixon told Stadium on Tuesday that the school had parted ways with him.

A Baltimore native, Dixon played at Maryland and led the Terrapins to the 2002 NCAA championship. Following seven NBA seasons, he transitioned to coaching, first as a special assistant to former Maryland coach Mark Turgeon. Then Dixon became the head coach of the University of the District of Columbia women's team in 2016-17.

Coppin State, in Baltimore, hired Dixon in 2017. He compiled a 51-131 overall record (37-51 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference). He never had a winning record in six seasons, and the Eagles finished 9-23 (4-10 MEAC) this past season.

Their season ended with 73-56 loss to Norfolk State in the MEAC tournament last Thursday.

Dixon, 44, also is featured on "The Real Housewives of Potomac" with his wife, Robyn.
