Exendine was born in Indian Territory[1] and played for Pop Warner's Carlisle Indians from 1902 to 1907. Though never having played the game before arriving at the institute, Exendine was named to Walter Camp's third-team All-American team in 1906. Vanderbilt upset Carlisle 4 to 0 in 1906. Vanderbilt running back Honus Craig called this his hardest game,[2] giving special praise to Exendine as "the fastest end I ever saw."

From 1914 to 1922, Exendine coached at Georgetown and compiled a 55–21–3 record. His tenure there included a 9–1 season in 1916 and an 8–1 season in 1921. From 1923 to 1925, he coached at Washington State, tallying a mark of 6–13–4. From 1934 to 1935, he coached at Oklahoma A&M, where he compiled a 7–12–1 record.

Exendine earned a law degree at Dickinson School of Law while he was coaching at Georgetown. He later practiced law in Oklahoma and served with the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
