Syracuse coach: Allegations are 'patently false'
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine says allegations that he molested two former ball boys for years are "patently false."
In a statement released by one of his attorneys Friday, Fine says these allegations have been thoroughly investigated multiple times and that he has fully cooperated with past inquiries.
Fine says: "Sadly, we live in an allegation-based society and an internet age where in a matter of minutes one's lifelong reputation can be severely damaged. I am confident that, as in the past, a review of these allegations will be discredited and restore my reputation."
