The University of Missouri athletics department is changing its procedures for clearing out old merchandise after selling a box of formerly-used cell phones that included text messages and contact numbers.

After someone named Mike Bellman paid $190 for 25 phones, he found out they included text messages to and from basketball coach Mike Anderson, football coach Gary Pinkel and Athletics Director Mike Alden. E-mails and contact numbers were also on the phones.

The university offered to buy them back, but Bellman said he hoped to sell them to a sports collector. Bellman did not immediately return calls and e-mails from The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Athletics department spokesman Chad Moller said all information will now be wiped out of phones before they are discarded.
