The commander of the Army’s Combined Arms Support Center and Fort Lee, Virginia, was removed from his position Wednesday, a Training and Doctrine Command spokesman has confirmed to Army Times.

Maj. Gen. Paul Hurley had served as commander of the Army’s sustainment think tank and learning institution since June 2017.

“He is currently the subject of an official investigation, and we cannot comment further at this time," Maj. Thomas Campbell, the TRADOC spokesman, told Army Times.

Hurley was relieved due to a loss of confidence in his ability to lead, Campbell added ― a catch-all statement that can cover everything from misconduct to inappropriate behavior.

Brig. Gen. Douglas McBride, currently the quartermaster commandant for the Army Quartermaster School, will serve as the interim CASCOM commander, Campbell said.

Meghann Myers is the Pentagon bureau chief at Military Times. She covers operations, policy, personnel, leadership and other issues affecting service members.
