Louisville AD: Ex-Wake analyst shared plays with assistant

LOUISVILLE Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich says a former Wake Forest assistant coach-turned-broadcaster did share “a few plays” with a Cardinals assistant before the teams played last month.

Jurich said in a statement Wednesday that Louisville offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway received a call from Demon Deacons radio analyst and former assistant Tommy Elrod before the game on Nov. 12. Galloway and Elrod were assistants to Jim Grobe at Wake Forest from 2011-12.

Jurich says Elrod passed along the plays that were then shared with the defensive staff, but “none of the special plays were run during the course of the game.”

Wake Forest conducted a nearly monthlong internal investigation into potential leaks after documents related to the team’s game plan were found at Louisville’s stadium. Wake Forest fired Elrod on Tuesday.
