ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden will conduct a one-on-one film session and workout with former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the hour-long special Gruden’s QB Camp – Terrelle Pryor on Thursday, June 30, at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN (re-airing at 10 p.m. on ESPN2). Excerpts from the special will be presented on SportsCenter
beginning Monday, June 27.
An ESPN crew shot the Gruden-Pryor meeting Monday at Gruden’s office in Tampa and at the practice facility at the University of South Florida.
ESPN college football anchor Rece Davis will host the one-hour special. In addition to offering a unique behind-the-scenes look at Pryor’s film session with Gruden, Davis will provide a timeline and perspective on the events at Ohio State that forced head coach Jim Tressel’s resignation and eventually lead to Pryor’s decision to forgo his final year of eligibility and make himself eligible for the NFL’s supplementary draft.
Pryor is the latest NFL prospect to step into the film room at Gruden’s affectionately termed Fired Football Coaches Association (FFCA) offices. ESPN’s Super Bowl-winning head coach turned MNF analyst has also met with NFL Draft prospects the past two years, including Heisman Trophy winners Sam Bradford, Cam Newton and Tim Tebow. Gruden also conducted a similar session with Super Bowl XLIV champions Drew Brees and head coach Sean Payton for Gruden’s Champ Camp – A Visit with the Super Saints in August 2010.
