UofL Fined By ACC For Part In "Wakey-Leaks" Scandal

12/17/2016 05:17 PM

The ACC issued a $25,000.00 fine, the highest allowed by their bylaws, to both the University of Louisville and Virginia Tech University following their review into the investigation conducted by Wake Forest University.

The ACC also fully supports UofL’s decision to suspend Lonnie Galloway for the upcoming bowl game.

“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, said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “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.”
