ESPN Offers Former Football Star Tim Tebow An Analyst Job
The Heisman-winning University of Florida quarterback, who turned pro and had brief stints with the Denver Broncos, the New York Jets and the New England Patriots, got two new jobs with the SEC Network and parent net ESPN.
After his tumultuous career ended with being dropped by the New England Patriots, Tim Tebow received an offer that he couldn't refuse. The former Heisman-winning quarterback will now be a college football analyst for the SEC Network when it launches in August 2014.
In addition to that, Tebow will offer commentary on the parent company ESPN. "I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity," said Tebow. "When I was six years old I fell in love with the game of football, and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC."
Tebow's obligation to the network, which will begin with pre-game coverage of the January 6 BCS National Championship Game, will not preclude him from continuing to pursue a career in the NFL.
His current status as a free agent will leave him without a team to live with, but he'll be fine given his status as a SEC icon with a nationwide appeal. "Tim brings a wealth of knowledge about the game, the conference and the passion among SEC fans."
The on-air plans for Tim Tebow include ESPN appearances on SportsCenter, ESPN Radio and the network's Heisman Trophy coverage.
