The dominoes continue to fall for Bill Cosby amid a growing number of sexual assault allegations against him. This time, though, it was Cosby who decided to distance himself from an establishment he was associated with and not the other way around.
"I have always been proud of my association with Temple University," Cosby said in a statement. "I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees."
Cosby attended Philadelphia's Temple University in the early 1960s, but he left before graduating to pursue a career in standup comedy. He has always been vocal about his support of the university, has donated lots of money to the school,and even has a Temple University scholarship in his name.
"The Board of Trustees accepts Dr. Cosby's resignation from the board and thanks him for his service to the university," Temple University said in a statement.
Late last month, The University of Massachusetts-Amherst, from which Cosby earned a master's and doctorate in education from, cut all ties with Cosby.
