In an event similar to to the one that occurred at the Notre Dame game, USC Athletic Director Pat Haden had another health episode on the USC campus today. According to a statement from the University Haden was leaving a meeting on campus when he began to feel lightheaded. He received medical treatment while on campus but remained alert. Shortly thereafter Haden was taken to his doctor later in the day. There have, as of now, been no new updates on his condition.

The University's statement from the Ripsit Blog:

"Haden was walking back from an on-campus meeting this morning and felt lightheaded, similar to how he felt at the Notre Dame game last October. He sat down outside Heritage Hall and the athletic department's medical personnel attended to him. Haden was alert and talking as he walked under his own power up to his office in Heritage Hall. Medical personnel continued to attend to him there before transporting him to his doctor off campus."

There were initial reports that Haden had collapsed and was carried to an ambulance on a stretcher.

Haden had a similar episode on the field at the USC and Notre Dame game when he was hospitalized. Last week Haden announced that he was stepping down as Athletic Director in June but would continue to work on the Coliseum renovation project. No word yet as to whether or not this latest incident will alter those plans in any way.
