Wake For­est fires an­a­lyst for at­tempt­ing to leak game plans

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS - From wire dis­patches and staff re­ports.

WIN­STON-SALEM, N.C. | Wake For­est has fired a for­mer as­sis­tant coach-turned-broad­caster who the school says at­tempted to leak foot­ball game plans to op­po­nents for three years.

The school on Tues­day night an­nounced the find­ings of a nearly month-long in­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion that started af­ter doc­u­ments re­lated to the team’s game plan for the Louisville game were dis­cov­ered at the Car­di­nals’ sta­dium.

In a state­ment, the school placed the en­tirety of the blame on Tommy El­rod — a for­mer Wake For­est player and as­sis­tant un­der for­mer coach Jim Grobe. El­rod was not re­tained by Dave Claw­son when he suc­ceeded Grobe in 2014, and he then be­came an an­a­lyst for the ra­dio broad­casts of the De­mon Dea­cons’ games.
