Just months after Secret Service Director Julia Pierson was forced out of her job, the second-ranking official was stepping down, the Secret Service said Monday.

The Washington Post reports that Deputy Director Alvin “A.T.” Smith was ousted just three days before he was to testify during a House oversight committee about spending cuts and officer training.

Smith, 56, has served in the position for three years, overseeing the day-to-day operations.

Smith has been offered another position in Homeland Security.

“His contributions to the Agency have been invaluable,” the Secret Service’s acting director, Joseph P. Clancy, said in a statement.
