Dantonio: 'any accusations ... are completely false' in ESPN report

Dantonio: 'any accusations ... are completely false' in ESPN report”

Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio denied accusations in an ESPN report that said he mishandled complaints of sexual assault against his football players.

Earlier Friday, Outside the Lines published a report about the "pattern of widespread denial, inaction and information suppression" when it comes to addressing sexual assaults on Michigan State's campus and within its athletic department.

"We had one incident that involved three people".

"That did not reassure me at all", Allswede says. Allswede says the attorney told her how Dantonio, the football coach, had dealt with a sexual assault accusation against one of his players: He had the player talk to his mother about what he had done.

After expressing sympathies with the survivors of former Team USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar's abuse, he said "every incident reported in that article was documented by police or the MI state Title IX office". "I have always worked with the proper authorities when dealing with cases of sexual assault". The values that we teach everyone in this program will be enforced. An independent law firm report commissioned by Michigan State found that Dantonio followed university policy and reported the incidents to authorities.

"I can assure you, as in last year's incident, I also immediately reported them to proper authorities".

Dantonio had meant to not take any questions but decided he'd answer two.

Dantonio also was asked about the rumor that he was planning to resign.

Mark Hollis announces his retirement as Michigan State athletic director.

Four football players were dismissed from Michigan State a year ago after two separate incidents of sexual assault.

Dantonio also took a few questions from reporters and said that he would not be resigning. "We've been here 11 years-it has not happened previously".

The fallout from the Larry Nassar scandal is far from complete at Michigan State University, as an ESPN report details troubling allegations that extend far beyond Nassar in the school's athletic department.

Izzo is in his 23rd season as Michigan State's head coach, posting a 560-223 record while leading the Spartans to the NCAA Tournament in each of the last 20 seasons, including seven Final Four appearances and one national championship in 2000.

"Over the past several years, we have dedicated significant new resources to strengthening our efforts to combat sexual violence", MSU spokesman Jason Cody said in a statement to "Outside the Lines" on Thursday.
