NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Gov. Bill Lee has announced that the head of Tennessee’s COVID-19 team will step down at the end of the month to take a job with a university in South Carolina.
Lee’s office announced Friday that Stuart McWhorter is leaving the Unified-Command Group to accept a senior advisory role at Clemson University.
McWhorter has only overseen the COVID-19 team since late March. He stepped down as the Department of Finance and Administration commissioner to take over the new position.
A replacement for McWhorter has not been named.
