USC athletic director Pat Haden addressed his health Saturday after he felt lightheaded and was transported to the hospital Feb. 9. 

In a statement on Twitter, Haden confirmed he was released from the hospital two days after it was reported he "underwent an unspecified medical procedure," according to the Los Angeles Times' Gary Klein and Lindsey Thiry:  

Haden, 63, has encountered several medical scares over the past few months, with Wednesday's hospitalization serving as another scary situation following his collapse on the field prior to an October showdown between USC and Notre Dame. 

Shortly thereafter, Haden resigned from the College Football Playoff selection committee after he released a statement saying "my doctors advised me to reduce my traveling," according to the Los Angeles Times' Chris Dufresne

On Feb. 5, the New York Times' Marc Tracy reported Haden plans to step down as USC's athletic director in June.
