ESPN's report comes just days after Larry Nassar, a former Michigan State athletic trainer, plead guilty to sexually assaulting seven women and girls while working on the school's campus.

"As tragedies are politicized, blame is inevitable", Simon said. "As president, it is only natural that I am the focus of this anger".

The evisceration of Michigan State University in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal continues.

A special, one-hour edition of "E:60" will air at 9 a.m. ET Sunday on ESPN that, according to the network, details a pervasive failure by Michigan State to properly handle multiple reports of sexual assault and allegations of violence involving athletes and athletic department members.

Nassar, 54, formerly of Holt, was sentenced Wednesday to 40 to 175 years in prison for multiple sexual assault charges, most related to assaults on his patients.

In the meantime, the United States Olympic Committee is urging the entire USA Gymnastics board of directors to resign, following Nassar's sentencing.

Legal experts said USA Gymnastics and Michigan State would need to consider the potential public relations disaster of aggressively challenging a group of very sympathetic plaintiffs in court. Tompsett and other NCAA experts said that could prove problematic. That being said, today I am announcing my retirement. "But I don't believe it belongs in the NCAA enforcement area".

With multiple investigations and a lawsuit against the school, university leaders had responded cautiously. "I don't think there are bylaws set up for it. Nassar is being prosecuted, Michigan State is being sued".

The MSU Board of Trustees had called the AG to investigate last week, and reiterated those calls at a meeting Friday.

Since Nassar's sentencing, school president Lou Anna Simon has resigned and athletic director Mark Hollis has announced his retirement.

Students are also asking for the university to keep them informed when investigations are pending. How could they not at least attempt to do something after Penn State, right? "You become so unapproachable that your own gymnasts don't feel comfortable telling you what's going on...kids were terrified of him". "Now is a time to say that no more do sexual assaults or sexual abuse have a place on our campus or any campus in our nation". She said in a statement that what happened at the school is "abhorrent" and "cannot happen ever again - there or anywhere".

The committee also sent letters to USA Swimming and USA Taekwondo seeking information about how those organizations handled allegations of sexual misconduct. "Not because administrators in Indianapolis decide on ad hoc basis that they apply". He worked for Michigan State and USA Gymnastics.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said Friday on Twitter that his office is actively investigating MSU over the scandal.

Many wore teal and awareness ribbons as a symbol of change. "I'm walking forward, I'm walking forward in a way that, based upon my deep assessment, gives the survivors, first and foremost, this athletic department, this university and my family, an opportunity to heal and step forward".

Some say the resignation of trustee Joel Ferguson would be a good start.
