Charrisse Jordan's husband, Eddie Jordan, will no longer be coaching the Rutgers University men's basketball team. On Thursday (March 10) it was announced that The Real Housewives of Potomac husband was fired from his position at the New Jersey university after three years on the job. "I have decided that we need new leadership for our men's basketball program," athletic director Pat Hobbs said in a statement, according to NJ.com. "Rutgers University is deeply appreciative of Coach Jordan's efforts these past three years. He is and will always remain a valued member of the Rutgers Community."

Eddie and the Scarlet Knights finished the season at 7-25 following a loss to Nebraska in the Big Ten Tournament this week. Eddie joined the team as coach in 2013 after playing for Rutgers in the 1970's. After a stunning upset over the Wisconsin Badgers in January 2015, the Scarlet Knights lost 32 straight league games in the Big Ten, marking the longest losing streak in 50 years.
Eddie's distance from his RHOP wife has certainly been an issue for the couple, as fans have seen them go through marital issues on the show. She discussed wanting a divorce from her husband on RHOP (clip below), but confirmed earlier this season she hasn't taken action on a divorce yet. "I must admit, this is not the first and probably wont be the last time I feel that this is the absolute END. Our relationship has been a rollercoaster ride for the last three years. To date, I have not filed for divorce nor do I plan to. Sometimes I say and do things hoping for a positive reaction. There were times in my marriage where that strategy worked. Lately…not so much. But, I haven’t totally given up on my marriage as of yet. As the saying goes… It ain’t over until the fat lady sings," she shared back in late February. "So far I may have heard a note, but no one is singing. At least not yet."
