Mark Dantonio denies allegations concerning handling of sexual assault complaints

"It's about all I'm going to say on it that we did cooperate with everything". While Johnson stopped short of defending Izzo, he offered to help him and others who have influence at Michigan State.

Nassar, a former Michigan State employee and gymnastics doctor for the U.S. Olympic team, was sentenced this week to 40-175 years in prison for molesting young girls and women under the guise of medical treatment. For mom, the recent resignation of university President Lou Anna Simon showed the university is serious about addressing any underlying problems that the Nassar case brought to light.

The university received a Title IX complaint of sexual misconduct against Nassar in 2014, but the investigation concluded that Nassar's conduct was not of a sexual nature and he was cleared of any Title IX violations, the Detroit News reported.

Several of the more than 150 victims who spoke at Nassar's sentencing hearing were former athletes at the school, and many victims accused the university of mishandling past complaints about the doctor.

Mark Hollis, the university's athletic director since 2008, announced his retirement Friday morning.

Meanwhile, reports from ESPN accuse the school's football and basketball programs of hiding a culture of sexual assault.

The board of trustees - which originally held a vote of confidence to keep President Lou Anna K. Simon before she resigned Wednesday night amid widespread pressure - asked that Schuette appoint an independent special prosecutor because of the potentially political undertones the investigation could take on given his 2018 run for MI governor. He is already serving a 60-year federal prison term for child pornography convictions. The scandal is symbolized by convicted serial sex offender Larry Nassar, who assaulted scores of women in his role as an athletic department physician.

Schuette named Forsyth, a former county prosecutor in MI, the special counsel dedicated to this investigation at a news conference Saturday.

MI state legislators were reportedly considering ways to impeach all the trustees if they don't resign. "That's about all I have to say". "And it's made us lose complete confidence and faith in our administration and in our university". "None of the individuals involved in perpetuating this monstrous case of sexual abuse, whether directly or indirectly, should be rewarded with a position of authority". "If we are to believe in real change, USAG (USA Gymnastics) and USOC (US Olympic Committee) need to do the same", Raisman said via Twitter.

"I feel like it doesn't really reflect MSU, it reflects Nassar", Filbrandt said.
