Retired Coast Guard commandant joins TSA

Retired Coast Guard Commandant James M. Loy will be the deputy undersecretary for transportation security and chief operating officer of the Transportation Security Administration, a newly created position.

Loy, who retired today after 38 years in the Coast Guard, will take up his new duties after a brief vacation.

Admiral Thomas Collins took over as the Coast Guard commandant.

In his new position, Loy will report directly to undersecretary for transportation security John Magaw.

Loy said, 'I look forward to bringing my experience in management, security issues and the maritime domain to bear as the TSA grows from its transition phase to maturity.'

A native of Altoona, Pa., Loy graduated from the Coast Guard Academy in 1964 and holds master's degrees from Wesleyan University and the University of Rhode Island.
