Tim Tebow Joins ESPN's "SEC Nation"

ATLANTA (AP) - Tim Tebow has his next football job - talking about the sport on TV.


The Heisman Trophy winner has been hired as a college football analyst for the new SEC Network in a return to his Florida glory days, but he still hopes to play quarterback in the NFL.


Tebow will appear on "SEC Nation," a pregame show that will travel to a different campus each week after the channel launches in August. The multiyear deal "will not preclude him from continuing to pursue playing opportunities in the NFL," ESPN, which runs the network, said in a statement Monday.


Tebow did not play in the league in 2013 after he was cut by the Patriots in August. In the span of just over one season, he went from a national sensation who led the Denver Broncos to the playoffs, to a backup, to out of the NFL.
"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 said in a statement released by ESPN.


ESPN senior vice president Justin Connolly called Tebow an "SEC icon with a national fan base and broad appeal."


Tebow will make his ESPN debut during pregame coverage of the BCS championship Jan. 6.
