USC Athletic Director Forced to Step Down
by Eugene Tierney on July 21, 2010

USC is forcing Athletic Director Mike Garrett to step down as of August 3rd and will be replaced by former USC quarterback Pat Haden.

Garrett has run into hard times, after the school was recently given 4 years of probation, a 2 year bowl ban, and scholarship restrictions because of rules violations in the athletic department. Most infractions were tied to the football and men’s basketball programs; specifically, Reggie Bush and O.J. Mayo receiving illegal benefits. Both players are having their legacies at USC removed, as all traces of the players are being removed. This includes the school returning Bush’s Heisman Trophy.

Garrett was the athletic director for 17 years; he was also a football player when he attended college at the school and won the Heisman Trophy in 1965.

Haden, also a former player, is planning on keeping new coach Lane Kiffin. Haden has run his own business and been on the USC Board of Trustees.
