Air Force Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson will stay another year, following in the footsteps of her predecessor.

Johnson arrived at the Academy in the summer of 2013, an assignment that historically lasts three years and is followed by retirement.

Asked about that, Maj. Bryan Lewis, a spokesman for the Air Force at the Pentagon, says via email, "She is not currently slated to move to a new position."

Academy spokesman Lt. Col. Allen Herritage confirmed Johnson has been extended for a year. Previous Superintendent Lt. Gen. Mike Gould also served four years and then retired when Johnson arrived.

By law, the Academy's superintendent is nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate for a minimum term of three years.
