Robert Young has been removed from his duties as Michigan State's vice president and general counsel, according to a university press release.

Newly-appointed Acting President Satish Udpa appointed Brian Quinn — former deputy general counsel — to take Young's place as acting general counsel.

“We appreciate that Bob stepped in last year to help the university with the settlement and many legal issues facing MSU," Udpa said in the press release. "It was a time of transition in the general counsel’s office."

Feb. 1 was Young's last day at MSU. Young was appointed by former interim president John Engler in May 2018.
