Schuette, who is running for governor, told reporters "it is abundantly clear that a full and complete investigation of what happened at Michigan State from the president's office down is required".

"MSU tried to silence my client in July 2014, by giving her a Title IX report stating she had not been sexually assaulted", Jim Graves, Thomashow's attorney, said in a statement to the State Journal. "As president, it is only natural that I am the focus of this anger", Simon said in a statement.

"I think we need to be much more transparent", Byrum said.

It wasn't just students at the MSU basketball game on Friday night showing support for the survivors of Larry Nassar, hundreds of people gathered together at "the rock" on MSU's campus as well. Throughout my career, I have consistently and persistently spoken and worked on behalf of Team MSU. I have tried to do this since first learning about the abuse in September 2016. This is a choice that my wife and I made. "Therefore, I am tendering my resignation as president according to the terms of my employment agreement".

Amid the fallout, the board had expressed support for Simon before her resignation, while she continued to face enormous pressure from students, faculty and legislators.

In their first public meeting since President Lou Anna Simon's resignation, trustees issued tearful apologies to the victims, students, faculty and others Friday. He took over as Spartans athletic director in 2008.

Scrutiny of Michigan State University's handling of sexual and violent assault cases within the athletic department - particularly the football and basketball programs - ratcheted up Friday when ESPN's Outside the Lines investigative journalism unit published a almost 6,000-word examination of the school's attempts to limit public knowledge of such cases.

"I'm not running away from anything", Hollis said at a news conference.

Larry Nassar

- Chris Solari (@chrissolari) January 26, 2018Hollis says "you should not jump to any conclusions" based on his decision.

Many people from within the university told Hollis he should "not do this", but insisted it was the appropriate response for the survivors of Nassar's abuse. "MSU needs to be better than this and we will be", he promised.

The chairman of the board of trustees posted a letter on the university's website, expressing regret for the group's handling of the Nassar scandal and agreeing that culture change is overdue. "We have failed you". Says he was not asked to retired, nor was pressured "in any way" to retire.

He went on to say he consulted with his family, colleagues, student athletes and more, and announced his retirement.

Athletic departments are supposed to be there to help the student-athlete become successful in life and to protect and guide them through hard times. Nothing happened other than those players being dismissed, and rightfully so.

But from the bottom, the MSU students want change.

But Lemke and some other Nassar accusers have begun to point fingers at those whom they believe could have taken action far sooner to stop Nassar from preying on girls and young women who came to him for treatment.
