ESPN Hires Tim Tebow (ESPN)
Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow has agreed to a multiyear deal to join ESPN as an analyst for the SEC Network, it was announced Monday. “I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity,” Tebow said in a statement. “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, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC.” Complex / Sports On Jan. 6, the former Broncos/Jets quarterback will make his ESPN debut by serving as an analyst prior to the 2013 BCS National Championship game. He’ll be on SportsCenter, College Football Live, College GameDay, and, well, just about every other college football-related show you can think of. Time / Keeping Score Although Tebow was a star quarterback in the Southeastern Conference, he struggled to make a mark in the NFL. He was released by the New England Patriots before the start of the 2013 season, after spending a season on the bench for the New York Jets in 2012. Sports Illustrated / Media Circus The initial question is how successful will Tebow be as an analyst. He is one of the most popular (and likeable) athletes in the country, and he’ll no doubt work hard to learn the craft. He also loves college football; Tebow was known for watching college games in his hotel room on Saturdays before NFL action, as well as on plane rides. Still, his opinions on football have mostly been vanilla, at least as a player speaking with the press. Bloomberg Businessweek “Tebow’s role with ESPN will not preclude him from continuing to pursue playing opportunities in the NFL,” says the press release. Yes, ESPN’s newest broadcaster joins hundreds of thousands of American men with NFL dreams currently on the not-precluded list.
