Nassar, who worked for Michigan State for decades, is currently serving a 60-year sentence for child pornography charges and standing trial for molesting seven girls, to which he has pleaded guilty. 

The NCAA bylaws require colleges to protect their athletes in regard to their health, safety and well-being. 

A Michigan State spokesman told the New York Times Tuesday night that the university was currently reviewing the letter from the NCAA before issuing a statement.
