Can you resign if you were thrown under the bus?

Apparently so:

University of Toledo College of Arts and Sciences Dean Yueh-Ting Lee resigned from his position July 15 and will become analysis and assessment in the human resources department, UT spokesman Matt Lockwood said today.

Lockwood said the university would conduct a strategic assessment of the college this fall. Once that assessment is completed, he said, the search for Lee's replacement will begin.

Lockwood called Lee's move from the dean's position a “lateral transition” to an area in which he has professional experience.

Does anyone know where the saying "thrown under the bus" comes from? Let's hope it is not a personal story.
