On Wednesday Temple News reported that comedian, actor and university alum Bill Cosby will remain a Temple trustee.
When we reached out for comment, an official Temple spokesperson said: "Bill Cosby is currently a member of the board of a trustees." As for the future, there is no word.
This news comes in the wake of widespread controversy surrounding Cosby and multiple rape accusations made against the 77-year-old star.
The first woman to accuse Cosby of rape is a former Temple basketball team staff member named Andrea Constand. Lawyers for Constand and Cosby settled a civil suit for an undisclosed amount of money. However, former prosecutor Bruce Castor said he believed Cosby was guilty of rape and perjury but there was not enough physical evidence against him to win a criminal case.
Cosby currently remains a member of Temple University's Athletic Hall of Fame. He was a letter-earning football fullback and competed on the school's track and field team. He entered the hall of fame in 1984. Associate Vice President for Strategic Marketing and Communications Ray Betzner told FOX Sports that he was "not aware" of any plan to review Cosby's trustee and hall of fame presence.
