Boeheim statement on Fine firing

Here's what Syracuse basketball head coach Jim Boeheim had to say about the firing of longtime assistant Bernie Fine amidst child molestation allegations.

“The allegations that have come forth today are disturbing and deeply troubling. 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.”
