Two Massachusetts colleges have severed ties with Bill Cosby after allegations of sexual assault surfaced, casting a cloud on his legacy as a celebrated entertainer. The University of Massachusetts Amherst asked the 77-year-old comedian to step down as an honorary co-chairman of the school's fundraising campaign, a university spokesman said Wednesday. Cosby, who received a master's and doctorate in education from the school, agreed.

"He no longer has any affiliation with the campaign nor does he serve in any other capacity for the university," spokesman Ed Blaguszewski said in a statement.
