UPDATED at 11:35a.m.: Michigan State University athletic director Mark Hollis is resigning in wake of Larry Nassar's sentencing.

Hollis has been in the job for 10 years.

He announced his retirement on Friday, two days after Michigan State President Lou Anna Simon stepped down amid the outcry over how the school handled allegations against Nassar, a former school employee accused of dozens of molesting girls and young women for years.

Nassar also worked for USA Gymnastics, where he abused some of the world’s elite gymnasts, including several Olympians.

Michigan State University’s governing board was set Friday to have its first public meeting since the resignation of President Lou Anna Simon amid an outcry over complaints that the school missed chances to stop former sports doctor Larry Nassar from sexually assaulting young athletes and botched its response to the scandal.
