Not Again … Syracuse Asst Coach Bernie Fine Accused of Molesting Two Ball Boys (Bobby Davis & Mike Lang) … Fine Placed on Leave
The shock and disgust has not even subsided in the Penn State child sex scandal and it would appear that we might have another at a prominent college.
As reported by ESPN, ‘Outside the Lines’, two former Syracuse University basketball ball boys, Bobby Davis & Mike Lang, have accused assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine of sexual molestation. According to accounts, the Syracuse police are now investigating the allegations. Davis stated that the molestation began in 1984 and took place at Fine’s home, Syracuse University facilities and on basketball road trips. What will this investigation bring? These original allegations were presented and investigated in 2003, however, ESPN and other media outlets did not report the story because there were no corroborating witnesses. Now there is one. We saw Penn State University get savaged by their sex scandal, is Syracuse on the clock? Fine has been placed on administrative leave as the investigation continues.
Two former Syracuse University ball boys say they were molested by associate head basketball coach Bernie Fine, starting in the late 1970s and continuing into the 1990s.
Police in Syracuse said they have opened an investigation into the allegations. And in a statement Thursday night, Syracuse said it has placed Fine on administrative leave.
One alleged victim, Bobby Davis, now 39, told Outside the Lines that Fine molested him beginning in 1984, shortly before Davis entered the seventh grade. Davis, the team’s ball boy for six years beginning in 1984, said the abuse occurred at Fine’s home, at the Syracuse basketball facilities, and on road trips, including the 1987 Final Four.
