By The Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) ' Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim says assistant coach Bernie Fine has his "full support" after ESPN reported police are investigating Fine on allegations of child molestation.

Boeheim says: "This matter was fully investigated by the University in 2005 and it was determined that the allegations were unfounded. I have known Bernie Fine for more than 40 years. I have never seen or witnessed anything to suggest that he would been involved in any of the activities alleged. Had I seen or suspected anything, I would have taken action. Bernie has my full support."

Syracuse placed Fine on administrative leave Thursday night.
