Jon Gruden will be instructor at camp

Former Bucs coach Jon Gruden won’t just appear at Storm coach Tim Marcum’s football camp this weekend.

He’ll be coaching at it.

Jongruden Not long after agreeing to be the camp’s guest speaker this Sunday, Gruden, recently named as a Monday Night Football host, told Marcum that since he’d already be there he wanted to provide instruction to the campers.

“We’re excited for the young athletes to have the opportunity to receive instruction from a Super Bowl champion coach,” Marcum said.

The non-contact camps will focus on skills, fundamentals and techniques inside the St. Pete Times Forum. Athletes will receive training from high school, college and professional coaches, along with current professional athletes. The list of those expected to coach include Robert Weiner, a two-time state championship coach at Plant, Orlando Predators coach Jay Gruden, Storm quarterback Brett Dietz and AFL legend Lawrence Samuels.
