Schuette said at a news conference Saturday that the independent probe will shine a bright light on every corner of the university.

Schuette in February of 2017 deferred questions about possible criminal charges for other MSU employees who may have known about Nassar's sexual assaults to Patrick Fitzgerald, an attorney MSU hired to conduct its own review. Olympic champion Simone Biles came forward as Nassar victim on January 15 and wondered why she had to continue to train at the Karolyi Ranch in Texas, a place where she said Nassar abused her earlier in her career. The investigation accounted for 11 of the 16 players reportedly accused of sexual assault on Dantonio's watch since 2007. He served on the board of Crime Victim Services.
