According to a report from Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic, Emmert was alerted to sexual assault allegations at Michigan State in 2010.

Spokeswoman Stacey Osborn provided Emmert's email to The Associated Press in response to a request for comment about a report by The Athletic, citing a letter sent by the National Coalition Against Violent Athletes in 2010 to NCAA leaders.

Emmert allegedly received a letter from Redmond that detailed the allegations about MSU athletes sexually assaulting women.

She questioned how the school handled a police report a woman filed accusing two MSU basketball players of sexual assault. At that time, there were at least 37 reports of athletes sexually assaulting women in the two years prior. I took her concerns very seriously, found her thoughts and advice constructive, and subsequently asked her to join an upcoming event we were planning, the NCAA's first Violence Prevention Summit in April 2011. Also in attendance alongside Emmert and Redmond was legal expert Wendy Murphy, according to the website. "He met with me, which was great and I appreciated that".

"What I really got from the experience with Mark Emmert was, that governing body governs him", Redmond said.

Still, Redmond said she fully supports the NCAA getting involved at Michigan State now and, in particular, probing the welfare and safety of female athletes treated by Nassar. He wrote that he discussed her policy proposal with senior leadership but noted the NCAA doesn't have jurisdiction to investigate criminal complaints.
