Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis has announced his retirement in a press conference on Friday as a result of the Larry Nassar scandal.

"The NCAA has requested information from Michigan State about any potential rules violations", Donald Remy, the NCAA's chief legal officer, . "MSU Shadows protected Larry Nassar for more than 20 years".

"It's important to know that their going to come up with a new plan, they're going to take the correct steps to make sure next time a sexual assault is reported to them, we know exactly what's going to happen so that that person can feel protected and feel safe when it comes to it", said Lemke.

Hollis has been athletic director since he took over for Ron Mason on January 1, 2008.

Bill Beekman became acting president of Michigan State University on January 26, 2018, after its Board of Trustees accepted Lou Anna Simon's resignation.

The departures from the MSU administration came after Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics doctor who also was employed by Michigan State, was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing more than 150 girls and young women, including some MSU athletes.

"To the survivors of sexual abuse at MSU...we stand with you in saying that the time is now for us to collectively change and improve the overall culture and safety and security for everyone at Michigan State University", Student Body President Lorenzo Santavicca said in a statement.

Michigan State gymnastics coach Kathie Klages resigned previous year after she was suspended for defending Nassar.

And one of the protest organizers says the problem didn't start or stop with Simon's resignation. She said in a statement that what happened at the school is "abhorrent" and "cannot happen ever again - there or anywhere".

Members of the gymnastics team were given explicit instructions not to speak to the media, she said, and Klages later asked them to sign a card as a show of support for Nassar.

The Education Department already was investigating separate complaints about the school's compliance with Title IX, the law that requires public schools to offer equal opportunities to both genders, and compliance with requirements about providing campus crime and security information.

"I'm not running away from anything, I'm running towards something", Hollis said, noting that he planned to cooperate with investigations by the Michigan Attorney General's Office and NCAA.

MSU's board of trustees held an emotional meeting Friday afternoon, where they apologized and vowed to change.

"Since my first day on the job as athletic director, my focus has always been on the student-athlete", Hollis said Wednesday.

Students interviewed by MLive expressed support for Simon's decision to resign.

"We as students are the true Spartans", said Lemke Friday night.

Two announced they will not seek re-election.
