Two referees have been axed on the eve of the new season after allegations of misconduct.
He has been taken off the National List by the Professional Game and Match Officials Ltd (PGMOL), the organisation in charge of allocating referees.
It is understood he will not referee for the body again.
David Coote officiated mostly in the Championship last season but also took charge of FA Cup and Play-Off matches. He remains under investigation amid separate allegations unconnected to Deadman.
Coote is still on the Select Group 2 List, the group of referees just below the Premier League. But he has not been allocated a match for this weekend.
It is claimed Coote is injured but Mirror Football understands inquiries being made by the PGMOL into his conduct have yet to reach their conclusion.
A spokesman for the PGMOL last night declined to comment.
