Michigan State gymnastics head coach Kathie Klages announces retirement

16 February 2017, 01:08 | Leonard Manning

When the teenager said he was, Klages allegedly told her there was "no reason to bring up Nassar's conduct".

Hollis says in this letter that Klages presided over a team meeting September 12, 2016 created to alert student athletes about the pending allegations against Nassar and give them resources.

MSU says it never heard any complaints against Nassar until 2014, and that they investigated and acted after that complaint.

Klages and MSU Athletic Director Mark Hollis met on Monday and discussed the team meeting in September, according to a letter from Hollis to Klages dated February 14 that the university provided to the State Journal.

Adding that she can't comment on specific allegations because of legal advice, Klages "looks forward to being able to testify under oath and fully answer all questions that relate to any involvement she is alleged to have had in the situation".

Two weeks ago, Klages was named in court papers filed by a former gymnast who claimed that Nassar repeatedly molested her from 1997 to 1999 during invasive treatments while she was training in an MSU youth sports program.

She will also claim the world title from the 2011 championships having finished behind Savinova-Farnosova in that race as well. The World Anti-Doping Agency had recommended five athletes and five coaches be banned for life, including Savinova-Farnosova.

Former MSU women's gymnastics coach Kathie Klages told the mother of a current gymnast in December that the child pornography the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it found on Larry Nassar's computers and hard drives may have been planted, an attorney confirmed Wednesday.

MSU gymnastics head coach Kathie Klages retired amid her suspension from MSU on February 14, MSU spokesperson Jason Cody confirmed via email.

"It's good to see the university is taking some steps in the right direction", said attorney Jamie White, who is suing Nassar and Michigan State on behalf of a current athlete. Dr. Nassar was trusted by Ms. Klages to competently and ethically treat her team members.

Klages is accused of downplaying complaints made by two teens in the late 1990s. Numerous allegations date back decades and involve medical appointments.

This motion, like those filed last week, alleges that Nassar gave his patients "pictures and other trinkets" to win their trust, and engaged his patients in "sexually suggestive conversations".

However, he has not been charged with crimes related to his role as a doctor for the university. Several of those lawsuits also name USA Gymnastics as a co-defendant. It was filed January 10 with 18 plaintiffs but has since increased to 37, with two women filing motions on Wednesday to join the lawsuit.
