Michigan State did not tell federal investigators about Nassar allegations report

"I've always been a Spartan, I always will be".

Dantonio was asked about rumors that he was planning to resign. "It is clear more needs to be done, and we are using every resource available to get better".

Hollis, a 1985 MSU graduate, was named Athletic Director at MSU in 2008, taking over for Ron Mason. "Four of the most powerful people at The Pennsylvania State University ... failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade".

"[She] said, 'You need to start working harder or else your scholarship is going to be in jeopardy", Lemke said. Hollis' departure is the latest development in the fallout from Nassar's sex abuse scandal.

But, her resignation is far from the final change that will happen in the fallout from Nassar's trial and the terrible revelations that came from it. Under the state constitution, the governor can remove or suspend public officers for "gross neglect of duty, " corruption or "other misfeasance or malfeasance".

Nassar was also accused of molesting other young gymnasts while employed by USA Gymnastics, the sport's US governing body. By February of this year, Klages was holding team meetings saying MSU gymnasts should do what they could to support Nassar.

And then, one after another, board members spoke.

Much of the blame falls upon the leadership of USA Gymnastics, the governing body that hired Nassar. It also required all USAG staff and board members to complete various safety and ethics training courses over the next six months. Nassar - who worked for MSU, as you know, while also being doctor to some of our most famous Olympic athletes, several of whom have accused him of molestation - has pleaded guilty to assaulting girls. "And clearly at Michigan State that hasn't been the priority for the past 20 years".

The board will work to identify an interim president as expeditiously as possible and immediately begin the national search process for a permanent president. The decision was announced Friday at the campus in East Lansing, Michigan. He has an undergraduate degree from the school.

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is vowing to investigate the situation as well.

DeVos confirmed the investigation Friday.

Meanwhile, ESPN released an in-depth investigative story about two hours after Hollis' announcement and scrutinized the way football coach Mark Dantonio and basketball coach Tom Izzo handled allegations of sexual assault against their players. The longtime assistant under coach Joe Paterno had been convicted on 45 accounts of sexual abuse of young boys over a 10-year period after he retired from coaching.

Nassar is accused of molesting dozens of women and girls for years. Any suggestion that the university engaged in a cover-up is "simply false", a school statement said last week. The MSU Police investigation commenced. The NCAA said it has sent Michigan State a letter of inquiry about potential rules violations. The school has also deleted so much information from some incident reports that they were almost unreadable.

The perpetrator, Dr. Lawrence Nassar, appears destined to die in prison.

President Lou Anna Simon announced her resignation on Wednesday night following a week of calls for her to do so.

According to the Board of Trustees website, Beekman joined MSU in 1995 as an administrator with the MSU HealthTeam.
