WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) Army has suspended defensive coordinator Jay Bateman for two weeks for mishandling information about the Wake Forest football program.
West Point also fined Bateman $25,000 for his role in the so-called WakeyLeaks scandal and ordered him to attend an ethics training program. The academy said Tuesday it will use the forfeited money for ethics training for the athletics staff.
An investigation by Wake Forest concluded that former Demon Deacons assistant coach-turned-broadcaster Tommy Elrod leaked or attempted to leak game plans to opponents. Army, which plays as an independent, and Louisville and Virginia Tech of the Atlantic Coast Conference said they were tipped off to game-plan information by Elrod.
