Michigan State president to step down over Larry Nassar scandal

Posted: Updated:

Foxnews.com -- (1/24/2018) Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon will resign on Thursday over criticism of the university's handling of sexual abuse claims against former sports doctor Larry Nassar, the Associated Press reported late Wednesday. 

News of Simon's resignation was reported hours after Nassar was sentenced to between 40 and 175 years in prison for molesting women and girls under the guise of medical treatment. 

Many of the victims accused the university of mishandling complaints about Nasser, some of which go back more than two decades. 

Simon, who earned her doctorate at Michigan State in 1974, was promoted to school president in 2005.
