'Not Running Away:' MSU Athletic Director Retires; Trustee Is Interim President

The NCAA announced this week it planned to investigate the Michigan State athletic department amid the Nassar revelations. His legacy may crumble as part of the fallout.

For the hundreds of people marching through campus chanting "time's up MSU", the resignation of former president Lou Anna K. Simon and athletic director Mark Hollis comes as a relief, but they say MSU's board of trustees needs to take accountability for their actions...or in their opinion, lack there-of. USA TODAY columnist Christine Brennan called for Hollis to leave his post.

Beekman and Byrum declined to comment on whether Simon should have taken more accountability with her parting message. "As president, it is only natural that I am the focus of this anger". Nassar was cleared in both investigations. He was, though, advised by the school to avoid being alone with patients while treating their "sensitive areas", but the school didn't follow up on and enforce its request.

"I've been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, I've been interviewed by MSU police, and I've responded to every question", he added. Much of this has to do with Nassar, who was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for his crimes, but it also extends to other sports programs.

After an ESPN report detailed various allegations involving Michigan State football and basketball players, Dantonio addressed reporters briefly Friday night. Strampel remains a faculty member.

Simon is a graduate of Indiana State University. "I've always worked with the proper authorities when dealing with the cases of sexual assault".

Men's basketball head coach Tom Izzo was also named in the report. Another, Joel Ferguson, apologized at Friday's board meeting for conducting an interview in which he said more was happening at Michigan State than "this Nassar thing". More than 150 women and girls, including numerous athletes and Olympic gymnasts, have accused the former USA gymnastics team doctor of abuse. "This was not an easy decision", Hollis said Friday morning.

According to Hollis' contract, the former MSU Athletic Director is still eligible to receive two complimentary stadium tower passes for the football season, upon its expiration.

While all of these changes are swift and precise, will they actually change anything in the athletic community?

The NCAA has sent a letter of inquiry to the Spartans about the matter, and Hollis said that the school is preparing a comprehensive response.

"This is about changing the culture at Michigan State University that allowed a predator to exist among us".

"We stand in support of athletes and we've expressed our deep concerns with Michigan State University", the letter said.

"I have not seen it", Cody said.
