The NCAA revealed on Wednesday that its enforcement staff worked with the defense attorney for former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro to improperly obtain information.
A source told ESPN's Joe Schad the attorney was given a list of questions to ask during the deposition on behalf of the NCAA.
The attorney then sent a bill to the NCAA for expenses, which NCAA president Mark Emmert said led to questions of the organization's conduct in the case.
The delay in the notice of allegations also means former Miami and current Missouri men's basketball coach Frank Haith won't know if and when he will face any charges.
CBSSports.com reported Monday that Haith would be charged with allegations of "unethical conduct and failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance." Haith has professed his innocence.
