SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Governor Huntsman's chief of staff is resigning.

Jason Chaffetz plans to leave his job next month in order to return to the private sector.

Thirty-eight-year-old Chaffetz says he may restart a sales and marketing firm that he'd operated previously with his brother. He says he also may take a management position in private business.

Chaffetz says there was no specific occurrence or incident that caused him to leave. He says he just wants to earn more money and spend more time with his family. He has a wife and three children.

Governor Huntsman says Neil Ashdown, the current deputy chief of staff, will replace Chaffetz.
