A university spokesman said Donovan was paid $3.5-million last season based on the unsigned extension.

INDIANA RESPONSE DELAYED: The NCAA told IU to wait until Sept. 26 to respond to the latest allegation that the school failed to monitor the men's basketball program. The response originally was due today.
