WASHINGTON (CNN) -- FBI Director Louis Freeh will resign his post in June, a senior government official tells CNN.

Freeh, appointed during the Clinton administration in 1993, had been asked to stay by President Bush during the transition between the Clinton and Bush administrations. Sources close to Freeh said at the time he intended to remain on the job for at least a few months while the administration developed its budget and policy initiatives.

Freeh has often discussed his desire to support his growing family. Freeh had four children--all boys--when he took the helm of the FBI in 1993, and now has six sons.
