>>USC's Haden Issues Apology

(Los Angeles, CA) -- USC athletic director Pat Haden is trying to make amends for his behavior during the Trojans win over Stanford on Saturday. Haden was caught on camera arguing with an official on the sideline. The AD released a statement through the school that stated "I apologized to Commissioner Scott, to the game officials, to Stanford and to the fans for any distraction I might have caused during Saturday's football game. In retrospect, I should not have approached the game officials. I should have waited until after the game and gone through the appropriate channels. In the best interests of our team and our coaches, I will stay off the sidelines for our next games." The 2-and-0 Trojans are at Boston College on Saturday.
