UPDATE: USC AD Pat Haden says he’s ‘feeling fine’ after hospital trips

Pat Haden

USC athletic director Pat Haden has been noticeably absent from athletic events in recent days.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Haden has been in the hospital.

“Haden had been hospitalized twice in the last two days because he was not feeling well,” a source told the Los Angeles Times‘ Gary Klein.

The university hasn’t commented on Haden’s status.

Haden missed the annual “Salute to Troy” event Saturday on campus. His absence stirred questions. The severity of his situation is currently unknown.

The 61-year old athletic director took over at USC in August of 2010. He is also a member of the 13-member College Football Playoff selection committee.

If Haden needs to miss any time, it may not have any effect on the selection committee. The group to determine college football’s future won’t meet again until the third week of October. At that point, the committee will meet in Dallas for seven straight weeks.

UPDATE (5:25 p.m.): USC released a quick (and encouraging) statement from the school’s athletic director, Pat Haden, who remains in the hospital:

    I certainly hope that Pat’s condition is not serious. However, this report does not sound good at all.

    Good guy, who is restoring USC’s CFB and BB credibility. Let’s hope his health issues are manageable.

    How do people thumbs-down a get well post for a person’s health? Are you that miserable in your own circumstance that you genuinely wish someone else ill health? One thing I’ll never understand about humanity.

    Best wishes, Mr. Haden, from a non-USC fan.

    I don’t wish sickness or illness on anyone.
