Former Florida State quarterback Chris Weinke puts together stellar staff for IMG Academy football program

Former Florida State standout quarterback Chris Weinke, who led the Seminoles to the 1999 national championship and then won the Heisman Trophy as a senior in 2000, clearly knows something about having a big-time team around him.

Now, in his role as the director of the IMG Academy football program, he and his boss, John Madden, have assembled a stellar cast of coaches and instructors for the Kickoff Weekend June 4-6 at the Bradenton facility. It includes:

John Robinson, the former coach at USC and the Los Angeles Rams, as the head coach for the youth camp; Terry Shea, the personal quarterback coach for Brady Quinn, Matthew Stafford, Sam Bradford and the Bucs' Josh Freeman as they prepared for the NFL draft; Steve Hagan, current tight-ends coach for the Cleveland Browns; Jim Hanifan, the ultra-successful offensive line coach for the Washington Redskins and St. Louis Rams; seven-year NFL lineman, Tom Nutten; former NFL defensive back, Michael Hawthorne; former Miami star linebacker Dan Morgan (a teammate of Weinke's in Carolina); Tom Pratt, a longtime NFL defensive line coach who helped Bucs' first-round pick Gerald McCoy get ready for the draft; and former Bucs kicker Martin Gramatica.

Registration for the camp is now being accepted and to ensure the best training environment, there's a limited number of spots at each position. For instance, 20 high school quarterbacks and 10 youth quarterbacks.
