Jon Gruden to appear at Marcum football camps

There is one surefire way to enhance the status of a football camp.

Produce a big-name speaker.

In that regard, Tim Marcum has succeeded.

Chucky The Storm coach, who is trying to stay busy with the future of the Arena Football League in limbo, will host a series of camps in June. At one of the sessions, former Bucs coach Jon Gruden, who recently was named as a host of Monday Night Football, is expected to take part.

“That’s a big deal,” Marcum said.

The non-contact camps will focus on skills, fundamentals and techniques inside the St. Pete Times Forum.

“It should be fun,” Marcum said. “I’m looking forward to it. Where else can you get instruction inside with air-conditioning?”

Gruden, who led the Bucs to a Super Bowl title but was fired in January, will be the camp’s guest speaker June 7, Marcum said. He will give insight on how to become a successful athlete.
