ABC News’ Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) reports:

Romer, gone. Summers, gone. Orszag, gone. And now comes more news of a key member of the president's economic team heading for the exit.

Et tu, Goolsbee?

Of the key members of President Obama's original economic team, soon only Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner will be left.

Council of Economic Advisers chair Christina Romer left in September 2010. Her replacement, Austan Goolsbee, announced yesterday that this summer he will return to teaching at the University of Chicago. National Economic Council director Larry Summers returned to Harvard in January. Office of Management and Budget director Peter Orszag left last July.

What's going on?

More to come….
