A former MSU psychologist accused of failing to tell authorities about Larry Nassar's abuse can no longer practice psychology.

The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs says Gary Stollack surrendered his license on Thursday. He did not contest a finding that he violated a public health code, due to 'conduct that constituted negligence or a failure to exercise due care,' according to a press release from LARA.

A panel approved a consent order Thursday that will not allow Stollak's license to be reinstated, reissued or reactivated in the future.

Stollak is retired former professor of clinical psychologist at MSU.

Kyle Stephens said she told Stollack that Nassar had abused her in 2004. Nassar met with Stollak and denied it, and no police report was made.

Stollack testified in 2016 that he could not remember anything because of a stroke.
