Tampa, Florida -- 10 News has learned Tampa Bay Storm Coach Tim Marcum's computer is full of racist jokes and pictures, as well as hours of extreme pornographic images.

Marcum is the winningest coach in the Arena Football League, capturing seven titles. But in addition to his prowess as a coach, Marcum is a collector of emails that freely use the "N" word and pornography that goes beyond imagination.

Among  a small sample  of some of the e-mails is an image of Air Force  One with the word "Watermelon One" superimposed, a takeoff on Nicorette Gum that uses the "N" word instead of Nicorette, a takeoff on Sesame  Street called Ghetto Sesame Street and comparing Michelle Obama to a chimpanzee.

Marcum says he is not a racist and says he has shown some things to black players where as he puts it, "They laugh their ass off." Marcum says the images don't reflect what is in his heart and what he feels as a man.

Some former Bucs and Florida Gators are also involved in these e-mails. We'll tell you more about that tonight on 10 News at 11.
