President, Athletic Director Out At Michigan State In Wake Of Gymnastics Scandal

President, Athletic Director Out At Michigan State In Wake Of Gymnastics Scandal

"You deserve to be heard", she said.

Hollis says he's already been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Michigan State University Police.

An immediate statement b the board of trustees that reflects its attitude towards future allegations of sexual assault at MSU. William Strampel, who was dean of Michigan State's College of Osteopathic Medicine and has been named in lawsuits by victims, announced last month he was taking a leave of absence for medical reasons. "I said I didn't want to get anyone in trouble". Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have this much support from my fellow Spartans or have this big of an impact on so many people. He said that is "absolutely false".

Nassar was a Michigan State sports doctor from 1997 to 2016.

The protest is planned to start at six o'clock Friday night.

Additionally, students attending the evening basketball game are encouraged to wear teal T-shirts for a "Teal Out" of the Izzone.

Hollis resigned Friday, two days after "Outside the Lines" sought interviews with multiple administrators and athletic officials, including Hollis, Izzo and Dantonio, and told MSU of the main findings of its investigation, ESPN reported.

Klages retired in February 2017 and released a statement through her attorney saying she was "extremely distressed by the accusations that have been made about her creating any sort of impediment to gymnasts reporting complaints of criminal sexual conduct or sexually inappropriate behavior ..." "This was not an easy decision for my family, and you should not jump to any conclusions based on our decision-listen to facts".

Meanwhile, the board has invited an outside entity to investigate university policies and culture.

The trustees said previous statements and reactions from board members and recently ousted president Lou Anna Simon have been callous and tone-deaf and have lacked accountability.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Olympic Committee is demanding all USA Gymnastics board members resign over the scandal.

The survivors say they'll stay united in their efforts to bring more accountability and transparency to the university.

The USOC had threatened to decertify the gymnastics organization, which besides picking USA national teams is the umbrella organization for hundreds of clubs across the country.

Many wore teal and awareness ribbons as a symbol of change.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee has begun an investigation of sexual abuse in organized sports. One man that comes up in this conversation is John Geddert, one of the top gymnastics coaches that worked alongside Nassar and one of his closest friends.

Hollis has been athletic director since he took over for Ron Mason on January 1, 2008. He's the second university official to step down this week.

One of the signs at the rally said: "They didn't care until we knew". The report discovered a "pattern of widespread denial, inaction and information suppression" of sexual assault allegations.
