In surprise move, admiral tapped to lead U.S. Navy declines job, retires instead

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The man set to take over as the head of the Navy declined the position over the weekend, less than one month before he was scheduled to begin the job.

In a statement, Adm. Bill Moran confirmed that he had declined the appointment to Chief of Naval Operations, and regretted “any inconvenience” his decision caused President Donald Trump and Navy Secretary Richard Spencer. He said that though it was painful for him to retire instead, he did not wish to be an “impediment” to the Navy. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/military/surprise-move-admiral-tapped-lead-u-s-navy-declines-job-n1027251
