On Nov. 17, ESPN reported that two men had accused Bernie Fine, 65, an assistant basketball coach at Syracuse since 1976, of molesting them when they were children. Fine denied the allegations, and Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim angrily came to Fine's defense. Since then, another man went to Syracuse police to say he, too, had been abused by Fine. And both ESPN and the Syracuse Post-Standard have published stories about a recorded phone call from 2002 in which Fine's wife, Laurie, admits to one of Fine's alleged victims that she was aware of what her husband had done. That revelation led Syracuse to fire Fine, but it also raised questions about who knew what when with regard to Fine's actions. Information contained in this timeline comes from a timeline previously published by the Syracuse Post-Standard, plus additional news reports about the case. We will continue to update this as warranted. If you see anything of note we should add, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
