Pat Haden, USC's athletic director, will have medical procedure after being hospitalized Wednesday

Retiring USC Athletic Director Pat Haden, beset by recurring health issues during the last few years, was hospitalized Wednesday and is scheduled to undergo an unspecified procedure in the next few days, a person with knowledge of the situation said.

Haden was walking to Heritage Hall after attending a meeting elsewhere on campus when he felt light-headed, a university spokesman said.

Medical personnel attended to Haden, who then walked upstairs to his office, where he was evaluated further before being transported from campus, according to Tim Tessalone, USC’s sports information director.

“He was alert and talking,” Tessalone said.
