CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Bradley County's former sheriff is now in charge of the Hamilton County Jail.

Tim Gobble took over as Corrections Deputy Chief last Wednesday. Job is an interim position for the next six months.

Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond said Gobble was looking for work, since his failed bid for Tennessee's Third Congressional district seat.

The current administrator is on sick leave.

Gobble has said he's not interested in the job full time.
