DAVIS, Calif. (AP) - A former conductor of the University of California, Davis Symphony Orchestra has agreed to give up his professor emeritus title amid allegations he sexually assaulted a former student who now works at the university.

The Sacramento Bee reports D. Kern Holoman, who retired in 2013, relinquished his title Monday after the former student told the university he was preparing to publish the allegations on his blog. Holoman can no longer teach or pursue research related to the university.

Danny Gray, now a university administrator, alleges Holoman sexually assaulted him in a hot tub in Holoman's home in 1987, when Gray was a freshman. Gray says Holoman later raped him.

Holoman says he is "deeply apologetic" for harming Gray in any way but that "our memories of that time differ markedly."
