NCAA misses deadline on Donnie Tyndall appeal

Gary Parrish of CBS reports that the NCAA failed to meet a deadline — an extended deadline — to respond to disgraced coach Donnie Tyndall’s appeal of his ten-year “show-cause” penalty (a de facto suspension). Tyndall was fired from his role at head coach at the University of Tennessee at the end of the 2014-15 season after the extent of his discretions at Southern Miss (2012-2014) was revealed. Parrish writes:

“The NCAA’s Committee on Infractions panel failed to respond to Donnie Tyndall’s appeal by Tuesday’s deadline, according to a motion obtained by CBS Sports that was filed by Tyndall’s attorney. The motion is asking that the Infractions Appeals Committee now deny acceptance of the eventual response because of the missed deadline.”

The motion contends that any punishment towards Tyndall should be rescinded as a result of the NCAA failing to meet yesterday’s agreed-to deadline. Parrish quotes from the motion:

“Wherefore, Donnie Tyndall moves this Committee to deny the acceptance of a response of the Panel to the written appeal of Donnie Tyndall for failure to make a timely filing. Donnie Tyndall further requests that the Infractions Appeals Committee immediately set aside all factual findings and penalties imposed against Donnie Tyndall by the Committee on Infractions.”
