On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, we bring you continuing coverage on the hiring of Bill Beekman as Michigan State University's newest athletic director. This morning Beekman was unaminously approved by the MSU Board of Trustees as the school's AD and our own Kevin Lavery was able to grab a few minutes with him. Also, we have the raw audio from today's meeting and you will hear from an MSU professor who has been very critical of how the university has handled the Larry Nassar scandal. Also, we get the student body perspective of the Beekman hire from IMPACT 89FM play by play director / multimedia journalist Zachary Swiecicki. 

Al then closes the show with brief thoughts on the franchise tag of former MSU running back Le'Veon Bell. That, and more!
