Michigan State kept ties to coach accused of sexual abuse
College Athletics

In this Aug. 4, 2014, photo, Rick Butler, a nationally renowned volleyball coach from Chicago, watches a scrimmage during the first day of a volleyball camp at Abbott Sports Complex in Lincoln, Neb. Michigan State University has maintained ties to Butler for decades after he was publicly accused in 1995 of sexually abusing and raping six underage girls he trained in the 1980s. Letters obtained by The Associated Press from accusers’ advocates show the school has been under pressure since at least 2017 to sever ties with Butler. (Stacie Scott/Lincoln Journal Star, via AP)
