Nearly a year ago federal prosecutors launched a criminal probe after two former SU ball boys, Bobby Davis and stepbrother Mike Lang, accused Fine of molesting them decades ago when they were children.
After the allegations surfaced Fine who coached for 35 years along side Head Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim was fired from his position. The case came to light after ESPN and the Syracuse Post Standard released the allegations.
