An onslaught of sexual allegations against comedian Bill Cosby has seen him lose a lot, the latest being his role as a member of the Board of Trustees of Temple University.
More than a dozen women have come forward in the past few weeks with accusations that Cosby, 77, sexually assaulted them as far back as the 1960s.
Patrick O’Connor, chairman of the Philadelphia university’s board of trustees, said Cosby called him on Monday to resign.
“He didn’t want his personal issue to detract from his service to Temple,” O’Connor said in a phone interview with Reuters. “He was a great trustee. I thanked him for his service.”
