FREDERIC J. BROWN/AFP/Getty Images(TAMPA, Fla.) — Adm. William McRaven, the Navy SEAL who planned the raid that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden, gave up his control of Special Operations Commands on Thursday.

The transfer was completed at a change of command ceremony. McRaven will take over the University of Texas system. In July, it was announced that he would take the position of chancellor of the university system after the last chancellor, Francisco Cigarroa, announced his resignation.

McRaven gave a commencement address at the University of Texas at Austin, the school where his military career began as a member of the university’s Naval ROTC unit.
