Virginia Tech, Army and Louisville have all been contacted by Wake Forest as teams that received information from Tommy Elrod, the former Wake player and assistant coach turned radio broadcaster, in advance of their contests with the Demon Deacons. Elrod's motives for leaking game plan information to opponents of his alma mater have not been confirmed, but we are slowly learning which teams benefited from his actions as the Wakeyleaks scandal unfolds.
Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich released a statement Wednesday confirming that Lonnie Galloway, a former Wake assistant with Elrod on Jim Grobe's staff, received privileged information before the Cardinals' victory on Nov. 12.
Army confirmed to both Sports Illustrated and the Raleigh News & Observer that it had been contacted regarding the scandal. According to the News & Observer, the games in question against the Black Knights were Wake Forest wins in 2014 and 2015. The '16 meeting between the two teams, a 21-13 Army victory, has not yet been identified as a game where Elrod provided information.
Virginia Tech athletic director Whit Babcock confirmed Thursday that the Hokies were contacted by Wake Forest in the investigation, stating that he was disappointed to find out members of his staff accepted information from Elrod.
"We have recently been made aware that a former Wake Forest staff member provided one of our former assistant coaches one game plan information prior to our game in 2014," Babcock said. "We have no indication at this time that any of this information was shared with other staff members, nor utilized during the game itself."
Babcock also supported statements from former coach Frank Beamer and current defensive coordinator Bud Foster indicating they had no knowledge of the information provided by Elrod before Wake Forest's 6-3 double-overtime victory in that game.
According to the News & Observer, teams confirmed not be involved with Elrod or contacted by the school: Louisiana-Monroe, Utah State, Florida State, Syracuse, Boston College, Clemson, NC State, Duke, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Virginia.
In the case of Army (2014, 2015), Indiana (2015) and Louisville (2016), Elrod previously worked with a member of the opposing coaching staff.
