The commanding officer of a Boston Coast Guard unit has been fired for what the service calls a loss of confidence in his ability to lead.

Capt. Michael Husak was temporarily removed from command of Coast Guard Base Support Unit Boston on Tuesday by Rear Adm. Ronald Rabago, the Coast Guard's assistant commandant for engineering and logistics.

Husak, a http://www.uscga.edu/display.aspx?id=2990">1984 Coast Guard Academy graduate, has been reassigned to the academy pending the results of an administrative investigation, according to a news release. A service spokesman declined further comment.

The executive officer of BSU Boston, Cmdr. Tobiah Taylor, has assumed temporary command of the unit.

BSU Boston handles functions such as buildings and ground maintenance, environmental management and security for shore units, ships and boats.
