John Engler’s reign of terror is over!” That’s how MSU Trustee Brian Mosallam characterized the removal of John Engler as interim president of the university.

And, indeed, the board put Engler — a powerful former governor — out of the president’s office on Thursday.

Mosallam has been Engler’s most vocal critic on the Board of Trustees over the last year. He’s also been the most vocal advocate for Larry Nassar’s victims among the trustees.

He joins Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson to reflect on Engler’s tenure and departure, as well as the future of the university.
