No Surprise ESPN Lands Tim Tebow as College Football Analyst
It was reported a few weeks ago that Tim Tebow would be moving on from playing quarterback and into his next career. It was later revealed that career would be as a college football analyst covering the SEC. The floodgates then opened in which various networks found themselves in a bidding war for the incredibly popular Tebow.
It should come as no surprise at all that the mother of all sports networks landed the former Heisman Trophy winner. ESPN has reportedly hired Tebow to a multi-year deal to be a SEC football analyst. Personally, I thought CBS would do whatever it took to reach an agreement with Tebow. However, deep down I knew I should have put my money on ESPN.
“I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity,” Tebow said in a statement, according to ESPN. “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.”
As if people felt they didn’t see enough of Tebow, he will now be available on multiple platforms for the sports loving fan. He will primarily be seen on SEC Nation in which he will travel to and analyze SEC games. ESPN also states that he will be a regular on SportsCenter and various other programs.
Obviously, this is a huge deal for ESPN. Not only will the once talented collegiate quarterback spike the network’s ratings, he will also attract people who are not football fans to watch the various shows he appears on.
It should be noted that Tebow still has every intention of playing quarterback in the NFL at a later date, and his contract with ESPN will not prevent him from accomplishing that dream if the opportunity presented itself.
