If Tim Tebow doesn’t reach the big leagues with the New York Mes he won’t have to worry about finding employment. ESPN has signed the Heisman Award and BCS National Championship winning quarterback to a new multi-year contract extension to continue serving as a college football analyst on SEC Network’s traveling pre-game show SEC Nation. Tebow will also contribute year round to ESPN’s shows and remain involved on the network’s College Football Playoff programming, offering his personal insights and analysis.
“Tim brings a wealth of knowledge and passion to his analysis of college football and surprised many fans with his strong opinions and engaging presence on SEC Nation,” said Stephanie Druley, ESPN senior vice president, event and studio production. “His unique experiences within the SEC and his broad national fan base are huge assets to SEC Nation and ESPN’s larger CFP coverage.”
“Over the last three years ESPN and the SEC Nation crew have become like family,” added Tebow. “I love the passion that SEC fans bring to our set every Saturday morning and I look forward to continuing to share my own love of the game with fans on ESPN and SEC Network.”
Tebow has been with ESPN since 2014. He was the first college football analyst hired by the SEC Network. According to the network’s official release on ESPN Media Zone, his television involvement will not interfere with his ability to pursue his dreams of playing professional baseball.
