The committee's investigation comes as Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis announced his retirement Friday.

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

Nassar was accused of molesting dozens of girls and young women for years, including several Olympians, while working for MSU's athletic department under Hollis and USA Gymnastics.

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

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