In this Monday, Nov. 14, 2011, photo, Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim, left, watches the action with Bernie Fine, an assistant coach, during a college basketball game against Manhattan in the NIT Season Tip-Off in Syracuse, N.Y. ESPN reported Thursday, Nov. 17, that police were investigating Fine on allegations of child molestation. Shortly afterward, Syracuse placed Fine on administrative leave "in light of the new allegations and the Syracuse City Police investigation," the school said.

Should Syracuse men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim go the way of Joe Paterno? He’s been keeping a low profile since the university fired his longtime assistant Bernie Fine Sunday after he was accused of sexually abusing three boys. When allegations against Fine became public Nov. 17, Boeheim attacked the accusers, saying they were probably seeking money. He later said he regretted his statement for being “insensitive to victims of abuse.” Victims’ groups are now calling for Boeheim’s firing; Boeheim, meanwhile, ran a closed practice Monday.
