DENVER — Tim Tebow is headed back to football. But this time, he’ll be in the broadcast booth.
The Heisman Trophy winner and former Denver Broncos quarterback signed a multiyear deal to join ESPN as an analyst for the SEC Network, ESPN announced Monday.
“I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity,” Tebow 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, who was a star player for the Florida Gators in college, will primarily act as an analyst for the new show “SEC Nation,” which begins in August, ESPN said. He will also contribute to a variety of ESPN platforms, including SportsCenter, ESPN Radio and the network’s Heisman Trophy coverage.
Tebow will make his debut as an analyst on Jan. 6 during ESPN’s pregame coverage of the Vizio BCS National Championship Game.
