Bill Cosby has resigned his post with the Board of Trustees at Temple University, his alma mater.
The school put out a statement saying the resignation — which was accepted — comes in the midst of growing sexual assault allegations against the comedy icon, Reuters reported.
Mr. Cosby’s been accused of committing sexual assault and rape by more than a dozen women. He’s steadfastly denied the crimes and has not been convicted of any of them.
He put out a brief statement about his resignation: “I have always been proud of my association with Temple University. I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students,” Reuters reported.
