BROOKLYN - Syracuse University's assistant basketball coach and Brooklyn native Bernie Fine has been fired following allegations of sexual abuse.

University Chancellor Nancy Cantor made the decision yesterday after a recorded phone call was released between Fine's wife and one of his accusers, Bobby Davis. His wife said she knew about the abuse and did nothing about it.

A third accuser, 23-year-old Zach Tomaselli, also came forward yesterday. He claims the 65-year-old touched him multiple times in a Pittsburgh hotel room in 2002.

The Erasmus High School graduate was already on paid leave after two former ball boys first made the allegations.
