A radio announcer for Wake Forests football games provided or attempted to provide details about the Demon Deacons upcoming game plans to opponents during the past three seasons, according to the findings of an internal investigation conducted by the university.
The investigation ensued following Wake Forests 44-12 loss to Louisville on Nov. 12, when staff members discovered materials left behind by Louisville indicated the Cardinals were prepared for plays the Demon Deacons had not run before, according to a USA TODAY Sports report.
The universitys release placed blame on Tommy Elrod, a former Wake Forest player, graduate assistant and full-time assistant coach who was fired, along with the entire coaching staff, following the 2013 season.
Based on emails, text messages and phone records, the university said in a statement, Elrod provided or attempted to provide confidential and proprietary game preparation on multiple occasions beginning in 2014, when Elrod was hired as an analyst on the Wake Forest IMG Radio Network.
Its a story so crazy it could only happen in the sport of college football, which tends to lean toward the ridiculous: The home-team radio announcer, a coach fired and replaced by the current staff, leaking confidential information to the schools opponents.
