Authorities involved in a sexual-abuse investigation of Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine carried out a search at his home in DeWitt, N.Y., on Friday but declined to comment on what they were looking for. Jack Keller , a New York State Police spokesman, said troopers were called to assist the U.S. attorney's office at the search. Assistant U.S. Attorney William Pericak said he "can't confirm or deny" an investigation. Two former ball boys for the Syracuse basketball team, Bobby Davis and his stepbrother, Mike Lang , have said they were molested more than 25 years ago by Fine, who is on paid administrative leave from the university.
