Michigan State University will fire the former dean of its osteopathic medicine college and has suspended the radiology chairman in the wake of former sports doctor Larry Nassar's sentencing for molesting young female athletes.

The university said Friday it has taken the first step to revoke Dr. William Strampel's tenure and will not cover his legal expenses. Strampel has been sued by girls and women who were sexually assaulted by Nassar.
