Phone records #Wakeyleaks coordination between Wake radio analyst, Louisville assistant

According to phone records obtained by CBSSports's Jon Solomon, disgruntled former Wake Forest assistant-turned-traitor radio analyst Tommy Elrod spoke at length with Louisville assistant coach Lonnie Galloway during the week of the Cardinals-Deacons game and the two planned to meet the Friday night before the game.

Records indicate Galloway initiated a 25-minute call with Elrod on Nov. 9, the Wednesday before that Saturday's game. It was by far Galloway's longest call of that week.

Two days later the pair exchanged text messages that indicated they planned to meet up in Louisville:

Elrod at 8:37 p.m.: "On way now."
Galloway at 8:48 p.m.: "OK. Sitting by fire pit."
Elrod at 8:59 p.m.: "Outside?"

It doesn't appear this was the handoff that eventually led with Wake Forest stumbling upon its own game plans at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium since, according to the timeline Wake Forest offered the public, Deacons head coach Dave Clawson had already alerted AD Ron Wellman by that point.

Louisville won that game, 44-12, and Elrod was eventually fired as Wake Forest's radio analyst. Galloway was suspended for the Cardinals' appearance in the Citrus Bowl but remains on staff as co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach.
