In three NFL seasons Tim Tebow has gone from the biggest story in football to ESPN’s latest player turned analyst.
The announcement of Tebow’s signing came last Monday on ESPN. The deal is reportedly a multi-year contract that will have Tebow as an analyst for the show “SEC Nation”. The show will be reminiscent of ESPN’s Saturday morning college football show, “College GameDay”
SEC Nation will be a traveling pregame show and will visit the campus of the biggest game in the SEC that weekend. The shows debut will be August 28, 2014 when Texas A&M visits South Carolina. Tebow will also contribute to a collection of ESPN platforms, “SportsCenter” and ESPN Radio being a few.
Tebow’s ESPN debut however will come a lot earlier, as he is set to begin his new career Jan. 6 during the pregame coverage of the BCS National Championship game.
Though Tebow has switched career paths, his first love of football isn’t going away anytime soon. “When I was 6 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,” Tebow said in a statement.
In 2011 when Tebow’ was a member of the Denver Broncos and was the starter for the majority of the season he was able to compile a 7-4 record and a Wild Card victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
