UPDATE: Syracuse fires Bernie Fine amidst molestations accusations.

After reports surfaced today of taped phone conversations, Syracuse has decided to fire assistant coach Bernie Fine.

This is an ongoing story, and details will follow.

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim says he supports the university’s decision to fire his longtime assistant Bernie Fine and that he ”deeply regrets” his initial statements that may have been insensitive to victims of abuse.

FROM the AP, via Fox Sports:

On Sunday, a third accuser came forward in the investigation of child molestation allegations against Fine.

Boeheim says: ”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.”
