President named Commander-in-Chief/G. Washington influence?

Esteemed colleagues,

Is there any scholarly work to suggest the delegates at the Constitutional Convention granted authority as Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy to the President of the United States with anticipation that G. Washington would, with certain probability, be elected the first president under the Constitution, or was this simply a matter of separation of powers between Congress and the President with respect to military command?

Much thanks in advance,

D Zimmerman
