Magic Johnson: Fire MSU Staff That Didn't Do Anything About Sexual Assaults

ESPN MSU Sought End to Federal Oversight of Title IX Investigations

Earvin "Magic" Johnson, the former Michigan State University basketball star and one of its more prolific donors, said via Twitter this morning that anyone who was "aware the sexual assault happening to women on campus " and didn't do anything about it should be fired.

Since late last week, when doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 175 years for sexually abusing girls and young women for decades, the Rock has sported a powerful new look.

In a letter to the university released Monday, Schuette asked for the communications of administrators and others, including President Lou Anna Simon and athletic director Mark Hollis.

A school spokesman says Thomashow was told the investigation had resulted in recommended policy changes at the Sports Medicine clinic where Nassar worked.

Schuette is also seeking emails and texts for the university's governing board, its acting president, athletic doctors and trainers as well as records from an internal review that the university hired a former federal prosecutor to conduct. Schuette, who is running for governor, said the ongoing probe is looking into "systemic issues with sexual misconduct at Michigan State University" and that "no individual and no department" is off limits.

"Let's be very clear".

"We the Michigan State University Women's Rowing Team are joining as a united front to fight for the safety of all and hold the university accountable for its failure to do so", the message said. "This will be done right, period". More than 150 survivors of Nassar's sexual abuse gave impact statements in Ingham County Circuit Court earlier this month. "This investigation is and will continue to be, independent, thorough, transparent and prompt", state Attorney General Bill Schuette said at a press conference this afternoon.
