Magic Johnson shares thoughts on Michigan State sexual assault scandal

Magic Johnson

Michigan State has come under fire in the wake of a bombshell report about university officials covering up instances of sexual assault and violence, and one of the most prominent Spartans alumni is not exactly going to bat for his school.

On Monday morning, Magic Johnson said that any Michigan State official who had any knowledge of sexual assault and did not take the proper steps should be fired.

One person who has faced a lot of criticism is basketball coach Tom Izzo. While Johnson stopped short of defending Izzo, he offered to help him and others who have influence at Michigan State.

Izzo was grilled by a reporter over the weekend about reports that he allowed former player and graduate assistant Travis Walton to remain with the program even after Walton was accused of assault and rape in two separate incidents back in 2010.

According to a report from ESPN’s Outside the Lines, an investigation determined that Michigan State mishandled multiple sexual assault incidents, oftentimes choosing to handle them internally rather than involving law enforcement.
