Michigan State adds 2nd faculty athletic rep position after Nassar scandal

Some of the gymnasts have claimed Nassar abused them at the Karolyi Ranch, the secluded gymnastic center about 60 miles north of Houston, where elite members of the women's national gymnastics team trained for decades.

Marta Karolyi, in a deposition given a year ago as part of the lawsuit against the Karolyis and numerous others, acknowledged that "in or around June 2015" she received a phone call from the then-head of the national gymnastics organization, Steve Penny, informing her that the organization had received a complaint that Nassar had "molested a national team gymnast at the ranch".

Nassar, who also was Michigan State University team doctor, has been accused of sexually abusing over 260 young athletes under the guise of medical treatment.

The Karolyis, both 75, spoke with NBC for a "Dateline NBC" special to be broadcast Sunday.

Penny, the former USA Gymnastics chief, said in a statement that Marta Karolyi was mistaken about the timing of his call. "I feel like if they really didn't know, it's because they set up the system to show they don't care what's going on".

The entire board of directors at USA Gymnastics, the sport's governing body in the United States, resigned as a result of the revelations, as did the president and athletic director at Michigan State University, where Nassar also worked.

"There is nothing worse that someone can do to a sexual assault survivor than to disbelieve and attempt to silence them", she said.


Guthrie spent hours with the Karolyis at the ranch after the couple agreed to speak publicly for the first time since Martha's retirement following the 2016 Olympics.

"I no longer have the desire or the heart to administration going forward", Carter said in her resignation letter on January 24. "How could I see?"

Savannah Guthrie says she hates to miss a broadcast of NBC's "Today", but recently decided to make an exception.

"They answered every question", Guthrie told The Associated Press. Interim Michigan State University President John Engler said Friday that he regrets the school's response to a woman filing a federal rape lawsuit against the university. He would visit the ranch during national team training sessions and also accompany the team to events around the world.

In her first public remarks since revealing last fall that she was among Nassar's victims, Maroney said Tuesday that she wondered if the heights she reached during her career came at too high a price.

Martha Karolyi denied having any knowledge about Nassar's pattern of abuse.

"I heard during the testimonies that some of the parents were in the therapy room with their own child and Larry Nassar was performing this - and the parent couldn't see", she said.
