Former Tennessee coach Donnie Tyndall’s fight with the NCAA took an odd turn Wednesday.

Tyndall’s lawyer asserts that the NCAA missed a deadline Tuesday to respond to his appeal of the 10-year show-cause penalty levied against him, according to

The deadline was originally July 5, but the NCAA received a two-week extension, which came and went Tuesday without a filing. As such, Tyndall and his attorney are asking the Infraction Appeals Committee to not allow the Committee on Infractions to submit a response in the future.

In April, the Committee on Infractions ruled that Tyndall “acted unethically and failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance when he directed his staff to engage in academic misconduct” during his time at Southern Miss prior to leaving for Knoxville.

Tyndall was fired by Tennessee after one season in 2015 amid the NCAA investigation. Currently, he is the president and general manager of T-N-G Prep in Athens, Tenn., according to the Knoxville News-Sentinel.
