Bernie Fine Accuser, Zach Tomaselli, Admits Abuse Allegations Against Syracuse Coach Were A Lie


Zach Tomaselli, the man who accused long time Syracuse assistant coach Bernie Fine of sexual molestation, admitted that he made it all up and that it was a game. He was coached by the other accuser Bobby Davis, who told him what to tell detectives. Good luck putting that toothpaste back in the tube.

The reason Tomaselli went after Syracuse? They beat his beloved Kansas Jayhawks in the 2003 Championship Game.

The report from’s Matt Mulcahy

Zach Tomaselli, who accused Bernie Fine of sexual abuse now says he has been lying for months. In a series of email exchanges, Tomaselli writes: “It has become a burden of a lie and I am sick of it. Bobby Davis told me what to tell detectives and it pretty much took off from there. The evidence that supports me is just pure luck, not real evidence. I made the ENTIRE thing up. I have never met Bernie in my life.”

On the telephone Tomaselli told CNYCentral’s Matt Mulcahy, “It was a game to me. It was fun trying to make this story come alive. I was told by Bobby Davis what kind of porn Bernie likes. So I would add we were watching lesbian porn and going on and on. But, it didn’t pan out because of my school records, there was a hole I didn’t fill.”

Tomaselli is scheduled to report to jail to begin serving 3 years for sexually abusing a teen at a summer camp.
