Jan 16 (Reuters) - Michigan State University's interim president John Engler will resign, following renewed criticism of how he handled fallout surrounding the sex abuse scandal involving sports doctor Larry Nassar, the Detroit Free Press reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed officials.
Nassar sexually abused hundreds of female athletes while working as the doctor for the U.S. national gymnastics team. Nassar also worked at Michigan State University.
The university's board of trustees had been expected to discuss whether to fire Engler at a meeting on Thursday. (Reporting by Gabriella Borter; Editing by David Gregorio)
