Tuesday afternoon Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim appeared on his weekly radio show in Syracuse on ESPN 97.7 FM with co-hosts Steve Infanti and Chris McManus.


During the five minute interview, Boeheim was not specifically asked about the situation involving former Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine, who is currently under investigation for possible crimes related to the sexual abuse of children.

When asked during the show about preparation for Syracuse’s game tonight against Eastern Michigan amidst “distractions“, Boeheim said, “It’s the same as it is every week. The players have no distractions. They aren’t a part of anything. It’s stuff that happened a long time ago.”

Boeheim was also not questioned today about the apologetic statement he released Sunday night through the school after previously calling Fine’s initial accusers “liars” who were “trying to get money.”

When asked during his radio appearance today about the “emotions he was feeling“Boeheim said, “[the players] expect the coaches to be focused when they come to practice.”

Boeheim, who backtracked off his own initial accusations of Bobby Davis and Mike Lang after Fine was fired on Sunday, received a statement of support today from Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor.
