Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation
Current deputy director, Timothy P. Murphy

The Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (formerly known as Associate Director) is a senior United States government position in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The office is second in command to the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and takes over responsibilities as Director should his/her office be absent or vacant. The office is also the highest position attainable within the FBI without being appointed by the President of the United States. Responsibilities as Deputy Director include assisting the Director and leading prominent investigations. All other FBI executives and Special Agents in Charge report to the Director through the Deputy Director. The office is currently held by Timothy P. Murphy, who was promoted to the position in July 2010.[1]

Past Deputy Directors

Past Deputy Directors include John S. Pistole, Bruce J. Gebhardt, Thomas J. Pickard,[2] William Esposito, Weldon L. Kennedy, Larry A. Potts, David G. Binney, Floyd I. Clarke, W. Mark Felt (later revealed to be Deep Throat), Cartha Deloach, and Clyde Tolson. From 1978 to 1987, the position of Deputy Director was not filled due to William H. Webster's decision to divide the Deputy's responsibility between three positions.
