LOS ANGELES — Pat Haden knows all too well about rebuilding projects.
Essentially he took over an athletic department with its flagship football team recently being struck with severe NCAA sanctions.
At his personal home, he underwent a remodeling project that took close to 16 months.
His working home needed a facelift as well. That project, however, only took just over a year to complete and the revamped, state-of-the-art Heritage Hall is now set to reopen its doors, marking the second time Haden has been around for the opening of the landmark building on the USC campus.
"I was here in 1972 when it opened as a student here," Haden said.
