Tim Tebow will be returning to college football, according to Baptist Press yesterday, Tebow came to an agreement with ESPN as a college football analyst. ESPN was one of three networks vying for a contract with the former NFL quarterback. Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner, well known for wearing scripture stickers under his eyes during his time at the University of Florida, will kick off his broadcasting career with ESPN on Jan. 6 for the NCAA championship game of Florida State and Auburn.
Tebow’s career with the NFL wasn’t as glorious as his college years; however he showed the poise and confidence of true sportsmanship even under the criticism that expanded from his playing on the field to his strong Christian faith.
Tebow on the NFL and being a quarterback
Tebow told SI, "I know I have said this quote a lot: I don't know what the future holds, but I know who holds my future. I'm not sure what's ahead of me. I'm very excited to have this opportunity at ESPN, and who knows what the next few months will hold? I'll continue to train to be the best quarterback that I can be. I have been training very hard over the course of the last few months, five days a week and I feel like I'm the best that I've ever been as a quarterback right now and I hope I get the opportunity to show that. But I'm also looking forward to being a part of SEC Nation and being a part of ESPN."
What Tebow will do for ESPN?
Tebow will be a new voice analyst for ESPN’s new SEC Nation which starts Aug. 28, 2014 and airs weekly from different SEC campuses. In addition Tebow will contribute to other ESPN platforms including: “SportsCenter, ESPN Radio and the Heisman Trophy coverage.”
According to the SI report, Tebow’s ESPN contract will allow him a way out if he’s called back into the NFL as a quarterback. Tebow fans may not get to see the quarterback on the NFL field just yet, but they have something to look forward to as he prepares for this new opportunity.
