LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — During a radio interview Monday, Michigan State University Board of Trustees Vice Chairman Joel Ferguson said, “there’s so many more things going at the university than just this Nassar thing.”
He was referring to Larry Nassar, a former MSU sports doctor who admitted to sexually assaulting his patients under the guise of providing medical care. More than 150 girls, women and supports have spoken during his sentencing hearing in Lansing this and last week.
When asked if he could see the NCAA getting involved with MSU’s handling of complaints against Nassar, Ferguson laughed.
“This is not Penn State. They were dealing with their football program… I do not see… They’re smart enough to know they’re not confident to walk in here on this,” Ferguson went on to say.
On Tuesday night, The New York Times reported the NCAA is investigating MSU’s handing of the Nassar case. An MSU spokesman confirmed to 24 Hour News 8 that its athletic department had received latter from the NCAA. He said MSU was reviewing it.
Ferguson called in to Lansing’s Staudt on Sports radio show on The Game 730 AM WVFN Monday morning.
