Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis announces retirement

Longtime USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar has been sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for sexually assaulting and abusing more than 160 young female athletes, including Olympic gold medalists, under the guise of providing medical treatment.

Though Regan says she was never victimized by Nassar, she says many of her friends were and were discouraged by MSU administrators to come forward.

During the trial, Nassar submitted a statement to the court apologizing for his behaviour and asking that he not be forced to listen to more statements from the women. "Anywhere you walk, destruction would occur to those most vulnerable". It said, "While the USOC encourages USAG to think and act broadly on reforming its culture, we also believe that reform must start with an entirely new board".

"We understand that the requirements imposed by the letter will help us enhance our ability to accomplish change for the betterment of our organization, our athletes and our clubs", USA Gymnastics said. Your leadership, your professionalism, your compassion, and your commitment to allow each and EVERY ONE of us survivors the opportunity to share our impact statements in open court was extremely important and meaningful.

In the Thursday letter, USOC CEO Scott Blackmun gave the USAG a list of steps it must take to reform the organization, including electing an interim board by the end of next month and cooperating in an independent investigation.

Other conditions set upon USA Gymnastics by USOC include training for all staff at the US Centre for Safe Sport, and ethics training.

In addition to design changes, it also includes a new e-book-store that looks more like Apple 's recently-revamped App Store. There's no official date for the debut of the new app, but it's reportedly slated to be released in the coming months.

Five directors of the USAG board have already resigned amid the fallout.

- At each of its meetings, the board also must "substantively discuss" how the federation is progressing in implementing 70 recommendations made by former federal prosecutor Deborah Daniels.

Nancy Armour and Rachel Axon of USA Today reported the news, noting the first condition is the entire board must resign by Wednesday.

The university's athletic director also announced his resignation Friday.

"I'm not running away from anything", Hollis said, promising to cooperate with investigations into the matter. "At this point, MSU, you have a decision to make", reads the editorial.

"I'm not running away from anything. Comfort, compassion and understanding for the survivors and our community; togetherness, time and love for my family".
