Update: The Post Standard was able to get a comment from SU spokesman Pete Moore, who said the rumors are not true. Resume your lives.

Update: The tweet has been deleted, so it was clearly a mistake.
Earlier: I’m not sure what to make of this. Either someone is messing with Syracuse, or we’ve got a huge “oops” moment from one of the best communications schools in the nation.
Syracuse’s official Twitter handle just tweeted out the below, with a link to a very vague article about Jim Boeheim being forced to step down due to “NCAA violations from last year’s team”. The article is clearly written by an amateur and contains no details.
My best guess? A student meant to tweet that from his own account and messed up.
