Los Angeles: Embattled comedian Bill Cosby has resigned from the Temple University Board of Trustees amid multiple allegations of sexual assault against him.
The resignation is especially significant because the sexual assault case he settled in 2006 was filed by a Temple employee, reported TMZ.
Cosby, 77, who attended the school in the '60s and played football as well as running track, said, "I have always been proud of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation ..."
Andrea Constand, who worked for the women's basketball team at the university, filed suit against Cosby in 2004, claiming Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her. She filed a lawsuit and Cosby settled in 2006.
Cosby and his wife have donated money to Temple and a scholarship was created in their name.
