Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Syracuse University men's basketball head coach Jim Boeheim has been keeping quiet since releasing a statement on the firing of longtime assistant Bernie Fine on Sunday night.
When the allegations against Fine initially became public, Boeheim called accuser Bobby Davis a "liar" and claimed he was pursuing money.
The next day, the Hall of Fame coach refused to apologize for his statements saying, "I'm not Joe Paterno. Somebody didn't come and tell me Bernie Fine did something and I'm hiding it. I know nothing."
The following Wednesday, Boeheim spoke out again, saying he's just a basketball coach and that he didn't get involved in the 2005 investigation into Fine.
Then, shortly after Fine's firing on Sunday night, Boeheim recanted, saying he deeply regrets statements he made that may have been insensitive to victims of abuse, but reinforced his claim to know nothing of the alleged activities.
On Monday morning, ESPN reporter Andy Katz weighed in on the coach's statement and his future at SU.
Meanwhile, an abuse victims' advocates' group is saying that Boeheim's apology isn't enough. The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests are demanding that the university take aim against the celebrated coach
for his statements against the alleged victims.
Certain national sportswriters are also offering their own opinions on the matter.
CBSSports.com columnist Gregg Doyle has become very outspoken on the matter, calling for Boeheim's immediate ouster
Jason Whitlock of Fox Sports has defended the coach, pushing for everyone to reserve judgment
until all of the facts come out.
