Clay Pell, grandson of the late six-term U.S. Sen. Claiborne Pell and considered a possible candidate for governor in 2014, has left his job at the U.S. Department of Education.

Pell's last day was Friday, a department spokesman said in an email.

His departure comes six months after President Obama appointed Pell as deputy assistant secretary for international and foreign language education.

In a message to the staff of the Office of Postsecondary Education, Assistant Secretary Brenda Dann-Messier said thanked Pell for his service, saying that Pell "has brought tremendous energy, leadership, and vision to international education and providing America's students with global skills."

The message goes on to say that "Clay has been a powerful and effective voice for strengthening the nation's international and foreign language programs. ... We thank him for his service and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.''
