Federal prosecutors have ended their criminal investigation of former Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine Friday without charging him.
Fine was accused of molesting a child in 2002, but U.S. Attorney Richard Hartunian said Friday that there was not enough evidence to pursue the case.
Last November, former Syracuse ball-boys Bobby Davis and Michael Lang accused Fine of fondling them, starting as teenagers. The statue of limitations on prosecuting those charges had run out, but then several days later Zach Tomaselli accused Fine of attempting to molest him in 2002 while Syracuse was playing in Pittsburgh, reported by the Fox News.
Fine had denied the charges against him but was fired from his job as coach Jim Boeheim's longtime assistant at Syracuse and moved out of the area, reported by the USA Today.
Fine was not immediately available for comment.
