Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., will be the next director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation if a group representing more than 12,000 FBI agents gets its wish, the Hill reports.

The FBI Agents Association urged President Obama on Monday to nominate Rogers, a former FBI agent who is currently the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, to the post.

"Chairman Rogers exemplifies the principles that should be possessed by the next FBI Director,” said Konrad Motyka, the president of the Association. “His unique and diverse experience as a veteran, FBI Agent and member of Congress will allow him to effectively lead the men and women of the Bureau as they continue their work to protect our country from criminal and terrorist threats.”

Rogers left the Bureau in 1995 to begin his political career.

He remained non-committal regarding the opportunity to head up the Bureau, but did say he was “honored” to be put forward as a desired candidate.

“I am honored to have the confidence of the men and women of the FBI's special agent community, and am humbled by their endorsement of me to lead the Bureau,” Rogers said.  "The next generation of FBI leadership must recognize how essential special agents are to the Bureau's core mission.

"In whatever capacity I serve the public, my focus will always be to ensure we are in the best position possible to keep America safe.”

Rogers would be replacing current Director Robert Mueller, whose term expires in September.
