The mishandling of sexual assault claims at Michigan State reportedly extends beyond East Lansing.

According to The Athletic’s Nicole Auerbach, NCAA president Mark Emmert was alerted to the sexual assaults back in 2010. Auerbach reported that Emmert, who was hired in May 2010, was alerted to 37 reports of sexual assault at MSU just 6 months after he was on the job.

That information came to light after Kathy Redmond, the founder of the National Coalition Against Violent Athletes, provided Auerbach with a letter she wrote back in November 2010 that detailed Emmert’s lack of action on the matter. Her letter said that despite those 37 cases of sexual assault by MSU athletes, no disciplinary action was taken by the school.

Auerbach’s report came at the end after what’s been a stunning week in MSU athletics.

Amidst the sexual assault scandal of Larry Nassar, Michigan State president Lou Anna K. Simon stepped down. On Friday morning, MSU athletic director Mark Hollis also resigned.

On Friday afternoon, Outside The Lines released a report which claimed that 16 sexual assaults involving MSU football players occurred since Mark Dantonio arrived in East Lansing in 2007. The report claimed that Dantonio didn’t properly report the sexual assaults.

Dantonio then denied all claims of any wrongdoing for his role in the unreported sexual assaults, and said that he has no plans to resign.

Emmert has yet to comment on The Athletic’s report.
