Louisville, Virginia Tech To Be Fined $25,000 By ACC For Roles In WakeyLeaks

Louisville and Virginia Tech will be fined the maximum amount allowable by the ACC for their roles in the WakeyLeaks scandal.

According to the ACC's official website, both Louisville and Virignia Tech will each face institutional fines of $25,000 for their respective roles in the WakeyLeaks scandal. It's the maximum fine allowable by the ACC.

ACC Commissioner John Swofford released the following statement:

“I am deeply disturbed something like this would occur, and regardless of the degree of involvement, the protection of the competitive integrity of our games is fundamental to any athletic contest. Sportsmanship and ethical values are at the core of competitive integrity and in these instances, those were missing. The expectation, regardless of the sport, is that any athletics department staff members would immediately communicate with their supervisor if they are approached by someone from another institution with proprietary information.”

Following Wake Forest's internal investigation and ensuing discussions by the involved schools, it was determined that game plan information had been provided to three schools for a total of four games. Army, Louisville and Virginia Tech were determined to be the only schools involved.
