Not unusual, normally the FBI head gets his/her (never been a her) full term unless you are trump.  Not supposed to be a political position.

Is he willing to pledge to root out every corrupt act the GOP has pulled in the last four years?

If not, fark that guy.

Chris Wray. seems like an excellent civil servant, judging only by how often Donald JOHN Trump whines about him.

Why Did Congress Set a Ten-Year Term for the FBI Director?

Congress passed the ten-year term limit in the shadow of the abuses of President Richard Nixon and White House aides. The Senate Judiciary Committee held hearing on FBI oversight and a bill to establish a ten-year term in March 1974, the same month a federal grand jury indicted the "Watergate Seven" and named Nixon an unindicted co-conspirator. Nixon's acting FBI Director and nominee for the permanent post, L. Patrick Gray, had resigned in 1973 after it was revealed that he was giving the White House daily briefings on the FBI's Watergate investigation and that he destroyed documents relevant to the inquiry.
Congress wanted to address the Scylla and Charybdis of Nixon and Hoover: the risk of political interference in FBI investigations, and use of the Bureau for political purposes, on the one hand, and on the other, the danger of an imperial FBI director whose long tenure-and the secrets and political chits accumulated during that tenure-allows him to act without accountability.
When recommending enactment of the ten-year term, the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote a comprehensive report of its rationale, including:

The purpose of this bill is to achieve two complementary objectives. The first is to insulate the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from undue pressure being exerted upon him from superiors in the Executive Branch. The second is to protect against an FBI Director becoming too independent and unresponsive.

It's not, yet every single non-acting FBI Director has been a Republican.  Best to just replace him.

Seems the rank and file like him. He has been willing to contradict fat Hitler so seems like not the worst choice.

Just like how Obama decided to keep Comey around.  And how did that work out for democracy again?  Oh yeah. It almost killed it.

Fire ALL the trump appointments. Down to the dog catchers.

Wray needs to release a kraken of his own on Barr and Trump if Biden keeps him around otherwise he is just another empty suit sucking up all the 'rona in the room.

This is just Biden's clever way to get rid of Wray without having to do the deed himself.

You do realize that putting Republicans in charge of the economy, FBI and (in the future) military you are saying that Democrats are weak in all the ways Republicans say they are.

You really shouldn't fire FBI directors. But this dude has some explaining to do. Maybe alter tradition by firing and then immediately nominating him?

Kinda feel like he needs to explain to Democrats exactly what he was up to under trump and also answer to Republicans why tom Hanks and his child torture to harvest adrenochrome ring hasn't been busted yet
