My friends, welcome to the best college football story of 2016:
An investigation by the Wake Forest Athletic Department following the Wake Forest-Louisville football game on November 12th, found that former Wake Forest coach Tommy Elrod has provided or attempted to provide confidential game plan information to opposing teams, starting in 2014.
Elrod served as the Wake Forest color man on the IMG Radio Network beginning in 2014, and has been terminated immediately from his position at IMG.
According to a Wake Forest press release, he will “no longer broadcast Wake Forest football games and has been banned from Wake Forest athletics and its facilities.”
Elrod graduated from Wake Forest in 1997 and served as an assistant under Jim Grobe for 11 seasons. He was not retained by current head coach Dave Clawson.
That is about fifteen shades of awesome. First off, there are coaches out there who think they need Wake Forest game plan info? That’s a real thing? Do you pay for that, or was Elrod so pissed off about not being retained he was dishing out the good stuff out of sheer revenge?
Even better, Wake won six games this year. Can we find out which coaches got this information and still wound up losing to the Demon Deacons? Please?
