”The Penn State thing came out, and the kid behind this is trying to get money,” Boeheim said. ”He’s tried before. And now he’s trying again. If he gets this, he’s going to sue the university and Bernie. What do you think is going to happen at Penn State? You know how much money is going to be involved in civil suits? I’d say about $50 million. That’s what this is about. Money.” Coach Jim Boeheim has been the head basketball coach at Syracuse since 1976, the same year he hired BERNIE FINE.
In other news in academia today, after retiring from football coaching last year, in order to spend more time with his family, Urban Meyer has agreed to become the next football coach at Ohio State University. Reportedly, Meyer has agreed on a multiyear contract that could pay him almost $6 million a year.
Apparently, Boeheim is angry that some of the colleges’ money may have to be diverted from coaching salaries to the legal defense of sexually deviant and predatory coaches.
