Jim Boeheim issued a statement Monday morning apologizing to ACC schools he accused of ‘buying’ players during a conversation with ESPN’s Pete Thamel after Saturday’s game at Boston College.

In his statement, the Syracuse coach said he believed the three schools -- Miami, Wake Forest and Pittsburgh -- were NCAA compliant with NIL (name, image, likeness) rules.

Boeheim mentioned Pittsburgh, Wake Forest and Miami by name when he referenced schools that dug into the transfer portal and improved their teams by adding players with what he asserted was NIL (name, image, likeness) money.
