The Michigan medical license of Larry Nassar's former boss could be in jeopardy.

State regulators filed a complaint Wednesday against Dr. William Strampel, who was dean of Michigan State University's medical school. The complaint is related to a pending criminal case against Strampel, who is accused of failing to properly supervise Nassar and of his own sexual misconduct involving students.

The complaint could go through a formal hearing process. Any discipline would be up to a subcommittee of the Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery. A message seeking comment was left for Strampel's lawyer.

Nassar sexually assaulted women and girls while serving as a sports doctor at Michigan State. The university announced Wednesday that it agreed to a $500 million settlement with victims.
