Pat Haden update – leaves game early

USC athletic director Pat Haden suffered a scary moment prior to the Trojans game against Notre Dame on Saturday when he got light-headed on the sidelines and had to be taken to the locker room for observation by medical personnel.

It was announced after the game that Haden had left the stadium mid-game to get checked out at a local hospital, everything was OK, and he took a private plane home with his wife as soon as the game ended.

All the best to Pat Haden. He has been known to have health issues in the past, and there’s little doubt the events of the past week surrounding Steve Sarkisian’s termination have been tough on him personally.
