The man who last week was named temporary chief of the North Chicago Police Department is already out of a job.
Michael Hosking quit Tuesday, a North Chicago alderman confirmed to NBC Chicago. Mayor Leon Rockingham Jr. reportedly said Hosking wasn't a good fit for the job.
The sudden development comes as the community continues to deal with several cases of alleged abuse by police officers. Just a week ago, the former Lake Forest police chief took over for Mike Newsome, who was placed on administrative leave.
Rockingham last month overruled a split City Council vote to suspend Newsome following the November death of 45-year-old Darrin Hanna. Hanna was allegedly beaten by police responding to a domestic incident and died a week later.
The city reportedly has paid about $1.3 million to settle a half dozen police brutality claims during Newsome's six-year tenure.
