Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich admitted Wednesday an assistant football coach received "a few plays" from fired Wake Forest radio announcer Tommy Elrod last month.
Jurich released a statement that offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway received the plays from Elrod, who was fired Tuesday for leaking confidential information to the Demon Deacons' opponents.
Galloway and Elrod have known each other since 2007 and worked together on the Wake Forest football staff from 2011 to 2012.
"Lonnie received a call from Elrod during the week of the Wake Forest game, and some information was shared with him that week," Jurich said Wednesday in a statement. "Among the communication were a few plays that were sent and then shared with our defensive staff. None of the special plays were run during the course of the game. Our defense regularly prepares for similar formations every week in their normal game plan.
"Any other information that may have been discussed was nothing that our staff had not already seen while studying Wake Forest in their preparations for the game and the material was not given any further attention. I'm disappointed that this issue has brought undue attention to our football staff as we prepare for our upcoming bowl game."
Wake Forest launched an investigation last month after leaked game-plan documents were found at Louisville's Papa John's Stadium before the Demon Deacons-Cardinals game on Nov. 12.
The university investigated phone records, text messages and emails, which revealed that Elrod "provided or attempted to provide confidential and proprietary game preparations on multiple occasions, starting in 2014."
Elrod was banned from all athletic facilities by the athletic department after Wake Forest announced its findings Tuesday.
Louisville coach Bobby Petrino denied knowledge of any alleged wrongdoing at time of the allegations last month.
"I have no knowledge of the situation," Petrino said in a statement Nov. 16. "We take a lot of pride in the way we operate our program. As I've stated already this season, my coaching philosophy has always been to play the game with sportsmanship."
Elrod was an assistant coach for the Demon Deacons under former head coach Jim Grobe. When Grobe was fired after the 2013 season, Elrod joined Wake Forest IMG Radio Network.
Elrod played for Wake Forest from 1993-1997 and was quarterbacks coach and co-passing game coordinator under Grobe.
