MSU Trustee Tebay On Engler: A Wrong Has Been Righted



Michigan State University trustees garnered applause this morning after voting to force the immediate resignation of the university's interim president.

John Engler submitted his resignation Wednesday, saying he'd resign next week after making controversial comments about some victims of former sports doctor and convicted sexual abuser Larry Nassar. The Board of Trustees voted Thursday to make the resignation immediate. Trustee Kelly Tebay says "a wrong has been righted today. I'm sorry it took so long."

Today's vote marks the latest development stemming from the sexual assault investigation of now-imprisoned gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.
