Report: Affidavit Claims Wife Of Fired SU Coach Bernie Fine Slept With Players

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — According to the New York Daily News, former Syracuse ball boy Bobby Davis said in an affidavit that the wife of former Orange assistant coach Bernie Fine had sex with players.

The affidavit was filed Monday in New York State Supreme Court by attorney Gloria Allred.

A lawyer for Fine’s wife, Laurie, calls that accusation a “desperate” attempt to keep the suit alive.

Davis and stepbrother Michael Lang are suing Syracuse and basketball coach Jim Boeheim, saying they were defamed when Boeheim called them liars out to make money by accusing Fine, Boeheim’s longtime assistant, of molesting them.

“I believe Boeheim deliberately chose to ignore what he knew was improper behavior, or actually knew precisely what was happening and did nothing to intervene,” Davis said in the filing, according to the paper.

“It is not only Fine’s relationship with me and other boys that would have tipped Boeheim off. For years, Bernie Fine’s wife Laurie Fine had sexual relationships with basketball team players. Players used to talk openly about it as a known fact.”

Davis and Lang claim they were repeatedly forcibly touched by Fine in the 1980s.

The 66-year-old Fine was fired Nov. 27. He has not been charged and has denied any wrongdoing.

Syracuse said it would comment at an appropriate time.

    Hey Carton Codey should have punched you out. You’re only good at making fun of people. Can’t wait until you hit hard times.
    Make sure you take time to talk about Jimmy B getting fired. Boo Hoo Hoo
    You are an egomaniac. Try doing something good for people without bragging about it. You seem to do things just to make yourself feel good, your ego is sad and it comes out on the radio everyday. Sad, Fake.

    Who Cares.
    I dont care who slept with who – what matters
    is the dire state of the economy and being unemployed.
