USC baseball coach Ray Tanner was able to maintain his normal schedule Monday, a day after being diagnosed with vertigo, according to a team spokesman.
The 52-year-old Tanner missed batting practice Sunday at Carolina Stadium but was in the dugout for the Gamecocks' 20-15, series-clinching victory against Alabama.
"(Sunday) was a tough day for him, but he gutted it out," assistant sports information director Andrew Kitick said. "He wasn't feeling his normal self."
Vertigo, or dizziness, is usually caused by problems with the inner ear, brain or nerves between the inner ear and brain, according to vertigocure.org. Common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness and unsteadiness.
Treatment depends on the cause of the vertigo.
Tanner notched his 1,000th career win on April 11 at Vanderbilt. The Gamecocks (34-9, 16-5 in SEC) climbed to No. 6 this week in the Baseball America poll, their highest ranking this season.
