Vote of No Confidence in Michigan State Board

Vote of No Confidence in Michigan State Board

On Tuesday, ex-Gov. James Blanchard, whose law firm has been hired by interim MSU President John Engler to lobby in Washington, D.C. and help deal with a variety of congressional inquiries, weighed in on that raise the board offered.

Izzo also was asked if he has felt a burden in dealing with the investigation and whose decision it was exactly that he not speak about the investigation with media.

The vote is not binding and the Board of Trustees seems determined to defend the institution, from pending lawsuits, even if it offends the students and staff who make that institution work. In the aftermath of the scandal, both university president Lou Anna K. Simon and athletic director Mark Hollis resigned.

"I am not sure if the at-large members of the Steering Committee realize how insensitive and tone-deaf this motion makes us appear", Vickery said.

Engler's letter says he asked men's basketball coach Tom Izzo and football coach Mark Dantonio, both mentioned in the report, to refrain from comment while the report was being reviewed. "I made a commitment to work with them going forward". "I hope that MSU can soon repsond in full and affirm the integrity and probity that has been the hallmark of these two respected coaches".

Right now, the governing boards of MSU, Wayne State and the University of MI are selected by voters.

"I only saw a little bit, but the part I saw, I agreed with what he said", Izzo told reporters in Minneapolis. "As a physician whose core value is caring, I feel it's my obligation to the courageous survivors of sexual abuse to draw upon my experience in university clinical practice management to ensure safe quality care for every patient and every student, every time".

Dantonio denied allegations of mishandling any sexual assault cases in a previously unscheduled news conference held hours after the Outside the Lines report was published.
