Former Governor John Engler will named as the interim president at Michigan State University.

Michigan Radio has confirmed that the MSU Board of Trustees will vote to appoint Engler on Wednesday.

Engler takes on the post at a difficult time for the university as it reels from the fallout of the Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal.

Multiple investigations of the university are underway, including by Attorney General Bill Schuette and the NCAA.

Ex-MSU president Lou Anna Simon resigned last week amid growing criticism of how she and the university handled the Nassar scandal. Athletic Director Mark Hollis has also stepped down.

Engler is a former Spartan. He served as Michigan's governor from 1991 to 2003.
