Garrett out, Haden in as USC athletic director

BY foxsports • July 21, 2010

Southern California is cleaning house in its tarnished athletic department, throwing out much of what got the school in severe NCAA trouble.

Athletic director Mike Garrett and Reggie Bush's Heisman Trophy are the first two items to go.

The Trojans' embattled AD will be replaced next month by Pat Haden, who is determined to build an ethical program focused on playing within the rules while USC recovers from last month's NCAA sanctions.

Incoming USC president Max Nikias says the school will return its copy of Bush's trophy to the Heisman Trust. Haden says it's all part of the NCAA's directive for USC to disassociate itself from the New Orleans Saints star.
