Syracuse University has fired Bernie Fine as an assistant men's basketball coach, a school spokesman announced Sunday night, hours after new reports arose regarding his alleged sexual abuse of boys.
"At the direction of Chancellor Cantor, Bernie Fine's employment with Syracuse University has been terminated, effective immediately," Kevin Quinn said in a statement, referring to Syracuse Chancellor Nancy Cantor.
Fine was placed on administrative leave earlier this month, after former Syracuse ball boy Bobby Davis and his stepbrother, Mike Lang, accused him of molesting them.
Police opened an investigation on the matter on November 17, Syracuse police Sgt. Tom Connellan said.
The Syracuse-based Post-Standard newspaper and ESPN both reported Sunday the existence of a recording of a 2002 phone conversation that they said Davis had recorded between him and the coach's wife.
Pee-a-poo is what my granddaughter does frequently.
banasy – Peek-a-poo...Sasha is a true ankle biter. We're working to divert some of that pent up energy into biteable toys. I lightly sprayed my ankles with a touch of Lysol Disinfectant, and she stopped her sh_t right now !

So true banasy! We need to have better.systems to check out a person who desire
Im sure there will be more coaches. kids. victims etc before this is over. Just makes me wonder if these pervs take these jobs so they can be around kids/boys? They are sick either way. At least the boy in the Syracuse case recorded a convo between the coaches wife and himself. And the exerpts the AP had in the paper/ Fine is TOAST!
Head Coach at Syracuse still working?....why....he had to know.....why is he still there....aren't the kids at Syracuse just as important as PSU....just about everyone there was fired.....why is Syracuse reluctant to step forward and say "the pres of the school, the head coach and who ever else was involved closely with this man...has got to go!!!!
No matter what they are cant they go cruise sime where and hook up with a male of adult age, and be done with it? Why do they have to prey on the kids? I think maybe the adults would be a threat to them, and its to easy from them to lure them with money and other things, what a sick mind these men have. Maybe these men should be incarcerated in a state hospital castrated and turned lose in the cages with the rest of them , and maybe one or two of there victims as well
Fired? How about arrested, charged, and convicted of the statutory raypeing of an underaged person? Or would that tarnish the innocent somehow.
I'm all for charging a pedophile with whatever charge keeps him in prison the longest amount of time.
Terminology is immaterial.
So much squawking about them not getting worse than fired. This is just getting started.. Patience, i'm sure authorities are working on it..
I'm in total agreement with you, leeintulsa.
People are too quich to get the torches out.
@fired actually to get charged with a crime of such noteriety as this and not be found guilty keeps you out of jail but your life is ruined.Do you honestly think that if coach fine is found not guilty that he will ever coach again! You know alot of young people are jumping On this oh he molested me bandwagin!We need to be really careful of who we charge.
What do you know about this case that we don't know, "Fired"? Are you adding fuel to the fire for the witch-hunt?
With all that's in the news do u really think he's innocent?a perv is a pervand its not just coachs its law inforcement and everyone inbetween oh and add teachers and Dr. 2 the list.this is America land of opertunity.
