The man who replaced the disgraced dean of USC's medical school is out after less than a year.

The Los Angeles Times says USC's provost announced Thursday that Dr. Rohit Varma is "no longer dean." The statement says USC lost confidence in Varma "based on previously undisclosed information" the school received in the past few days.

Details weren't supplied. A request for comment from Varma wasn't immediately returned.

Varma replaced Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito, who resigned last year. USC later fired Puliafito after the Times reported he kept company with drug users.
