The commanding officer of the Naval Supply Corps School in Georgia was fired Friday, Navy officials said.

Capt. John Titus Jr., 45, was relieved of command by the head of Naval Education and Training Command, Rear Adm. Joseph Kilkenny, because of a "lack of confidence in his ability to lead," said Ed Barker, an NETC spokesman in Florida.

Titus's removal, the first CO firing of 2010, comes after a Judge Advocate General's investigation, Barker said. The spokesman declined to disclose the nature of the investigation.

The school will be run temporarily by its executive officer, Cmdr. Raymond Wilson, until a permanent replacement is identified, Baker said.

Titus, originally from New Jersey, was commissioned in 1987. He was last promoted in August 2008, about the same time he arrived at the Supply School, Navy records show.
