Well-known as a Fed dove, Evans has emerged as the most outspoken advocate for linking Fed policy to economic goalposts -- a vision that came to fruition at the Fed's last meeting in December.

At that meeting, the central bank announced its plans to keep interest rates near zero until the unemployment rate falls to 6.5% or inflation exceeds 2.5% a year.

Evans has said that he predicts the U.S. economy will grow 2.5% in 2013, and the unemployment rate will fall to around 7.5%.
