USC athletic director Pat Haden has been taken to his doctor after becoming faint on campus.

Sports information director Tim Tessalone says Wednesday's episode is similar to one that the 63-year-old Haden suffered last October before a game against Notre Dame that briefly sent Haden to the hospital.

In this case, Tessalone says Haden was walking back from a campus meeting when he felt light-headed and sat down.

Tessalone says medical personnel arrived to help him but Haden was alert, talking and even walked to his office before he was taken to see his doctor, apparently at a hospital.

There's no word on his condition.

Haden, who has a pacemaker, announced last week that he will retire on June 30.
