Admiral William Moran retires suddenlyAdm. Bill Moran had been selected to be Chief of Naval Operations, and his nomination was confirmed by the Senate in May. He had been slated to take over August 1.

The Secretary of the Navy has accepted Moran's request to retire.

USA TODAY has been seeking emails between Moran and a former Navy spokesman who had worked for Moran. Retired Navy Cdr. Chris Servello had also worked for Adm. John Richardson, the outgoing Chief of Naval Operations.

Servello and Richardson were rebuked by Navy officials after Servello had acted boorishly at an office Christmas party and Richardson was slow to discipline him.
