Another MSU doctor, with ties to Larry Nassar, is under investigation by the state's licensing agency---

The team doctor for the Spartan Men's Basketball Team is now among seven former, or current MSU professionals being investigated by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulation, or LARA.
Sports medicine doctor Jeffrey Kovan was added to the list Tuesday.

LARA is not saying exactly what it's investigating only that LARA investigations determine whether or not the licensee violated the public health code.

Dr. Kovan is also among several people from MSU who are being sued over the Larry Nassar scandal...

Nassar survivor Amanda Thomashow says she told Kovan about an incident involving Nassar in March of 2014.

Kovan reported the incident to MSU's Title 9 office which investigated the complaint, and ultimately found no misconduct on Nassar's part.

LARA is also investigating Doctors William Strampel, Douglas Dietzel, Brooke Lemmen and Gary Stollak.

Athletic trainers Destiny Teachnor-Hauk and Lianna Hadden are also under investigation.
