Embattled Michigan State President Lou Anna Simon will resign this week, according to a report from The State News. Calls for Simon to step down in the wake of the way she and the university have handled the Larry Nassar scandal have grown from a soft murmur to a deafening symphony with each passing day.
Simon, who has held the position since 2005, is expected to officially step down Friday. A public meeting must be called in order for the board to accept her resignation, The State News reports.
Ongoing investigations will eventually reveal just how much culpability Simon bears for Nassar’s long and unconscionable rein of terror.
