The commander of Naval Submarine Training Facility San Diego was fired after less than a year on the job, the Navy announced Friday.

Cmdr. Jared Severson was relieved of command Thursday based on the findings of a command investigation, the Navy said in a news release. According to the release, Capt. Steve Antcliff, the commanding officer of the Connecticut-based Submarine Learning Center, fired Severson for a “loss of trust and confidence in his ability to command” — the military’s boilerplate explanation for such reliefs.

Cmdr. Brian Wierzbicki, a spokesperson for Naval Education and Training Command, said it would be “inappropriate” to disclose further details about Severson’s firing.

“Due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, it would be inappropriate to provide further information at this time,” Wierzbicki said in an email.

Severson assumed command of the training facility in June. He’s been reassigned to Submarine Squadron 11 in San Diego, the Navy said.

The school provides basic and advanced training to both submarine and surface sailors, according to its website.

Lt. Cmdr. Chris Lindahl, who previously served as the facility’s executive officer, has assumed command, the Navy said.
