The Navy relieved the commander of the San Diego Submarine Training Center.

Capt. Steve Antcliff, commanding officer of the Underwater Learning Center, relieved Cmdr. Jared Severson from his command on Thursday.

The Navy relieved Severson due to a loss of confidence in his ability to lead his command, according to a news release from the service. Severson, whose relief came following the findings of a command inquiry, was reassigned to U-boat Squadron 11.

The Navy could not provide additional details of the investigation.

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

Severson took over command of the submarine training center in June 2021 after previously serving as commanding officer of submarine Development Squadron 5 in Silverdale, Wash., according to his publishable biography.

Severson joined the Navy as an inactive reserve in 1999. He attended Naval Officer Candidate School in 2001 and joined USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23) in 2002.

He also served on the USS Seawolf-class attack submarine. Connecticut (SSN-22) and the USS Los Angeles-class attack boat Annapolis (SSN-760).
