PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Temple University has announced that Bill Cosby has resigned as a trustee amid more than a dozen sexual-assault allegations.
   
The 77-year-old entertainer has been a highly visible cheerleader of his alma mater in Philadelphia and a board member since 1982.
   
Board chairman Patrick O'Connor says Cosby does not want to be a distraction to the board.
