Jim Boeheim on Bernie Fine's termination

Syracuse University Jim Boeheim released a statement supporting the firing of his longtime assistant.

“The allegations that have come forth today are disturbing and deeply troubling," he wrote in a statement released on Facebook. "I am personally very shocked because I have never witnessed any of the activities that have been alleged. I believe the university took the appropriate step tonight.

"What is most important is that this matter be fully investigated and that anyone with information be supported to come forward so that the truth can be found. I deeply regret any statements I made that might have inhibited that from occurring or been insensitive to victims of abuse.”
