Tim Tebow Joining ESPN As SEC Network Analyst
Tim Tebow and ESPN announced the signing of a multi-year deal Monday. Tebow will appear as an analyst on ESPN's new SEC Network.
If you couldn't get enough of Tim Tebow as a backup quarterback in the NFL, he's back — now as an analyst on ESPN.
Tebow said in a statement, "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." (Via Wikimedia Commons / Jeffrey Beall)
So, it sounds like Tebow isn't giving up on his hope of being an NFL quarterback just yet.
Even though he's had quite a few turns in his football career. Tebow was traded by the Broncos, then released by the Jets, signed by the Patriots and later cut by them too before the regular season. (Via The Boston Globe)
But, the transition to TV isn't a surprise for Florida Gators alum.
Earlier this month, USA Today's The Big Lead reported Tebow was actually causing a three-way bidding war between ESPN, Fox and CBS.
ESPN announced it's a multi-year deal with Tebow — though we don't know exactly how many years. He'll make his debut as an analyst for the BCS National Championship Game.
ESPN'S SEC Nation show will start Aug. 28 of next year with Texas A&M at South Carolina. Joe Tessitore will host. (Via Montgomery Advertiser)
