Federal authorities have dropped their investigation into sexual abuse claims that cost a Syracuse University assistant basketball coach his job, threw a top-ranked team into turmoil and threatened the career of Hall of Fame coach Boeheim. After a probe spanning nearly a year, U.S. Attorney Richard Hartunian said Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 there was no evidence to support claims that Bernie Fine had molested a boy in 2002 in a Pittsburgh hotel room.
