USA Gymnastics employees forced to resign following Nassar scandal

USA Gymnastics employees forced to resign following Nassar scandal”

Hours later, the university named its vice president to serve as acting president after the departure of President Lou Anna Simon. Attorneys handling civil cases against Michigan State and USA Gymnastics, among others, are also looking into those details. "As president, it is only natural that I am the focus of this anger".

In motions filed this month to dismiss the lawsuits, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State argued that most of the allegations were barred by a statute of limitations requiring personal injury claims in Michigan to be brought within three years. Throughout my career, I have consistently and persistently spoken and worked on behalf of Team MSU.

Kylee Kunse, a freshman who plans to major in animal science, said she came to the rally because she thought that leadership at the East Lansing school needed to change. "Therefore, I am tendering my resignation as president according to the terms of my employment agreement". Four of the 21 board members have already stepped down. Following the rally, she said felt overwhelmed by the support from her fellow students and the MSU community.

Mark Hollis, who had been athletic director for 10 years, disclosed his decision to retire during a meeting with reporters on campus.

I have received many questions and inquiries about today's reports.

"I don't want anyone to perceive that I'm walking away", Hollis said.

"NCAA legislation never was meant to subject member institutions to NCAA oversight and penalties for every injury or harm that might occur on an institution's campus", Tompsett said.

Hollis oversaw the athletic department for over a decade, officially taking on the role of AD on January 1, 2008 after more than a decade working within the department in various roles. "MSU needs to be better than this and we will be", he promised.

Nassar was a Michigan State sports physician from 1997 to 2016. There's no other way to describe it. Several of the 150-plus victims who spoke at his hearing were former athletes at the school, and many victims accused the university of mishandling past complaints about Nassar, who also is accused of molesting Olympians and other young gymnasts while working for USA Gymnastics. Hollis held a news conference minutes later to confirm he is retiring.

Coaches, trainers, fellow athletes and administrators failed their athletes at the highest level in this case. "Then you're essentially saying gymnastics and little girls aren't as important".

A student march and protest was scheduled for Friday evening.

"My heart breaks, my heart breaks thinking about the incomprehensible pain all of them and their families have experienced (caused by Nassar)", Hollis said.

A list immediate changes the board will enact to empower sexual assault survivors and restore trust. That's as damning a statement as you can make for any athletic director and by any measure, an ultimate failure of anyone in an authority position. "I hope that has a little bit, a little bit, of helping that healing process".

In the scandal, the NCAA fined the school $48 million, reduced the number of football scholarships, barred the team from postseason play and invalidated 112 victories.
