There won't be any charges filed in New York State against former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine in the wake of an investigation by the Onondaga County District Attorney's office. District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick says the statute of limitations precludes that.

Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick held a news conference in Syracuse Wednesday, where he announced that his office is ending its grand jury investigation into sexual abuse allegations against former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine.

The long time assistant men’s basketball coach at Syracuse University has been placed on administrative leave, after two former team ball boys have accused him of sexual abuse.

Bernie Fine has been S.U.’s assistant basketball coach for 35 years. Former ball boy Bobby Davis, who’s now 39, told ESPN that he was molested by Fine beginning in 1984 and lasting more than 10 years.
