Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim announced Friday afternoon that former player Gerry McNamara has been elevated to the position of assistant coach. Boeheim made the announcement via a written statement.
The move is being made while associate head coach Bernie Fine is on administrative leave following accusations of child molestation.
McNamara started all 135 games he played in during his four-year career at Syracuse, and helped lead the Orange to the 2003 national championship. He ranks fourth all-time at SU in points scored (2099), first in minutes played (4781), second in steals (258), third in assists (648), first in three-point shots made (400) and attempted (1131), and first in career free-throw percentage (89.1%).
