Advocate group calling for SU to fire Boeheim

  • Text size: + -

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- In the wake of what's unfolded in the last day or so, one advocate group is now calling for action to be taken against head coach Jim Boeheim.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests issued a statement saying, "We're glad that Bernie Fine has been fired but it's crucial that Syracuse University officials discipline Jim Boeheim for his extraordinarily hurtful recent comments attacking abuse victims. Boeheim's apology will do little or nothing to 'undo' the harm he's caused. Nor will it deter others from making similarly callous comments in the future. If the university really wants to move forward and create a safe climate for abuse victims, it must take decisive action against Boeheim."
