LANSING, Mich. (AP) The Latest on the fallout from the Larry Nassar scandal (all times local):

4 p.m.

Michigan State University says it is turning over 45,000 pages of material to a special independent counsel investigating if the school mishandled sexual assault allegations against former doctor Larry Nassar.

Pat Fitzgerald, a former Chicago federal prosecutor hired by the university, sent a letter to investigators Friday the deadline imposed by the state attorney general's office.

He says the school this week produced about 25,000 pages constituting Dr. William Strampel's electronic calendar entries. The university on Friday announced its plan to revoke the tenure of Strampel. The former dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine told police he never followed up after ordering Nassar to have a third person present during certain treatments.

The university says it is producing approximately 20,000 additional pages of material Friday and will submit more on a rolling basis.

Michigan State also faces inquiries from the Legislature, Congress and the NCAA.

1:40 p.m.

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.

Suresh Mukherji, chairman of the Department of Radiology and chief medical officer of the MSU HealthTeam, is suspended.

Strampel and Mukherji were interviewed by a campus detective and an FBI agent last March as part of an investigation into restrictions that were supposed to have been put on Nassar after a 2014 Title IX probe.
