Bernie Fine Dropping ESPN Lawsuit

Bernie Fine has dropped his lawsuit against ESPN. The former SU coach was suing the cable sports network for 11 million dollars, after the network aired reports in 2011 that Fine sexually abused ball boys on the basketball team.

An investigation found no wrongdoing on Fine's part. Fine was fired from his job with Syracuse University just a couple days after the reports began airing in November 2011. 

There's no word on why Fine is dropping the lawsuit, and no comment from ESPN.
