Des Moines  U.S. Attorney Matthew G. Whitaker, a former All-American football player for the University of Iowa, has announced his resignation, effective when his successor is officially appointed.

“Being United States Attorney is the greatest professional experience and honor of my life, ” Whitaker said in a prepared statement ”  I am very proud of what we have accomplished in this office.”

Whitaker had served as U.S. Attorney since June 2004.  He played for the University of Iowa’s last Rosebowl team in 1991.

Nick Klinefeldt is expected to replace Whitaker.  The Senate Judiciary Committee just gave Klinefeldt the nod, but he has yet to be confirmed by the full Senate.
