SYRACUSE, N.Y. —

Former Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine has a new job.

The 66-year-old Fine has been hired as a consultant by the Maccabi "Bazan" Haifa franchise of the Israeli Basketball Super League. The team made the announcement Thursday.

Fine will be based in the U.S. and will consult on player personnel decisions and help in the search for a new coach.

Fine has strong ties to Israeli basketball. He coached the U.S. Maccabiah team to a silver medal at the 1993 World Maccabiah Games.

Fine, who coached at Syracuse under Jim Boeheim for just over 35 years, was fired in November after two former team ball boys accused him of sexually abusing them more than 20 years ago.

Fine has denied the allegations and has not been charged.
