Sad that Boeheim is bring crushed by the "gotcha" media world we live in, before all the facts are in.

Title makes it sound like he did it on purpose. It was an accident.

Exactly. Poor choice of words in the title

Mike Anderson’s coaching kills me.

Any thing to make Mike look better with Banner. He wouldn't hire Boeheim because of this.

How tragic for OrangeNation and for the family and friends of the departed. 

Sounds like JB did everything one should in a horrible situation.  In the 90s I hated Jim Boeheim (but only for the right reasons) as an adult I have nothing but respect for the man and what he as accomplished.  When I saw the headline (elsewhere) I mistakenly read that Boeheim had been killed and it was a kick in the gut.  Glad that isn't the case but that doesn't make this any less tragic for the loved ones of the man who died.

Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim struck and killed a man with his car while driving on an interstate late Wednesday night.

Syracuse.com was the first to report the news, which involved a man who had gotten out of a car that was just involved with a crash. Boeheim was driving by and struck the man while trying to avoid the crashed car around midnight.

Onondaga County (N.Y.) District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick later confirmed the report to WSYR on Thursday morning.

According to the DA, no evidence of alcohol or drugs was detected, and Boeheim was traveling at the proper speed for the highway.

The disabled vehicle was in the middle of the highway, according to Syracuse Police, and Syracuse police said Boeheim attempted to avoid the vehicle.

WSYR identified the victim as Jorge Jimenez, 51.

You know the media did that on purpose too. Not that many are going to read the article if it just said Boeheim was involved in a fatal car accident. No, that newspaper that made the headline just had to spice it up by saying Jim Boeheim KILLED a man, as if he did it intentionally. They KNEW that would be an attention getter. Just another sad indictment of what the newsprint media is today.

Prayers to all that were involved in this tragic event.

Remarkable that a guy could be involved in the same program for over 55 years without going even for a short time to another job.  He and Dave Bing were a very good backcourt back in the day and the personal success that both have had since is amazing

Mike Anderson’s coaching kills me.

I understand that Mike Anderson's perceived lack of coaching ability causes a lot of pain among Hog fans, but the story of another basketball coach accidentally being the cause of death to someone in a car wreck should not be used as a chance to take a shot at Anderson. It is in poor taste to do so.

Just my opinion of course........

Very sad and condolences to the guys family. I never liked Jim though but wouldn’t wish this type deal on him.

It wouldn’t surprise me to see Jim retire soon. I’d bet they go after Mike Hopkins at Washington.
