Shocker In Syracuse

11.18.11 | Bob Price


Syracuse University has placed associate head basketball coach Bernie Fine on administrative leave after 2 former ball boys told ESPN they were molested, and the alleged abuse spanned over 12 years.  One man, Bobby Davis, is now 39-- the other, Mike Lang, is 45 years old. They said the abuse started in 5th or 6th grade, on away games in hotel rooms. 

Fine has been with the program for 4 decade. The university said it fully investigated this in 2005, but no victims stepped forward. Head coach Jim Boehim released a statement to the press last night, saying he's known Bernie Fine for 40 years and has never seen or witnessed anything. He says fine has his full support.
