Template:Federal Bureau of Investigation Directors of the Federal Bureau of Investigation are appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the Senate and serve ten-year terms unless they resign or are let go before their term is up. J. Edgar Hoover, appointed by Calvin Coolidge, was by far the longest-serving director; he held the position from 1935 until his death in 1972 because there was no law limiting service time. The current FBI director is Robert Mueller, who was appointed in 2001 by George W. Bush.

The FBI director is responsible for the day-to-day operations at the FBI. Along with his deputies, the director ensures cases and operations are handled correctly. The director also is in charge of staffing the leadership in any one of the FBI field offices with qualified agents. Before the September 11 attacks, the director would brief the President on any issues that arise from within the FBI. Since then the director reports to the Director of National Intelligence, who in turn reports to the President. [1]
