Tim Tebow has found himself a new gig.
The former quarterback has signed with ESPN to become an on-air analyst for the network's SEC Nation, a moving pre-game show that broadcasts from a different SEC campus each week.
“I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity,” the Heisman trophy winner said in a statement. “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, 26, will make his TV debut on January 6 during the 2013 VIZIO BCS National Championship. He will also participate in a variety of ESPN platforms including SportsCenter, ESPN Radio and the network's Heisman Trophy coverage.
“Tim is a SEC icon with a national fan base and broad appeal. He will be a significant contributor to the compelling content we will deliver with the SEC Network,” said Justin Connolly, ESPN senior vice president, programming, college networks. “Tim brings a wealth of knowledge about the game, the conference and the passion among SEC fans.”
