Several of the 150-plus victims who spoke at his sentencing hearing were former athletes at the school, and many victims accused the university of mishandling past complaints about Nassar.

These other cases involve the Michigan State men's basketball team, which is coached by Tom Izzo, and their football team, which is coached by Mark Dantonio.

"I'm not going anywhere, in my mind", Izzo said.

According to a Detroit News investigation, reports of sexual misconduct by Nassar reached at least 14 MSU representatives in the two decades before his arrest, with no fewer than eight women reporting his actions.

What kind of punishment will Michigan State University face for their involvement in enabling and covering up the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal that has negatively affected hundreds of lives, including those of the survivors and their families?

Izzo said he did not have a chance to fully digest the report on a game day and declined to answer questions about specifics within it.

The final speaker was Rachael Denhollander, the former gymnast who first made Nassar's abuse public in a September 2016 story in the Indy Star. "I can assure you in last year's incidents I also immediately reported them to the proper authorities".

Allswede wrote ESPN reporter Paula Lavigne an email Friday pushing back against Dantonio and MSU. According to the ESPN report, MSU has attempted to shield people in its football and basketball programs accused of sexual abuse and violence against women in order to maintain the school's reputation. Outside the Lines told Cody of the main findings of its reporting.

McKnight emerged as a star in his three seasons with USC, rushing for 1,014 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior in 2009. Defense attorneys said Gasser fired in self-defense when McKnight approached his vehicle after the confrontation.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association is also investigating Michigan State, and inquiries are planned in Congress and the state Legislature.

On Thursday, Outside the Lines reported that MSU officials in 2014 did not notify federal officials that the university had dual Title IX and campus police investigations of Nassar under way even though federal investigators were on campus that year scrutinizing how MSU dealt with sexual assault allegations. No charges were filed in each of the six cases.

The accusers said they were regularly molested after they sought medical treatment for various injuries.

A majority of board members expressed support for Simon before her resignation, but she faced pressure from many students, faculty and lawmakers.

“She literally has devoted her entire professional life to this institution, and more than anyone else has helped make MSU a national and global leader in higher education.”. On Friday, following the various reports relevant to MSU's athletic department, Hollis announced he would be stepping down from his position and retiring from MSU. "We have always had high standards in this program, and that will never change".

Dr. Larry Nassar - perpetrator of sexual abuse on scores of young women - was sentenced this week in a MI court, and forced to hear victim impact statements from any accuser who wanted to speak.

The MSU board announced on Friday that its vice-president, Bill Beekman, would serve as acting president until an interim president and then a permanent president is appointed.
