After a tough NFL Career Tim Tebow has found himself a new job on ESPN.

The Heisman winner and University of Florida quaterback, will be a college football analyst for the SEC Network when it officially launches in August 2014. He will also offer commentary on the parent network ESPN.

After a tumultuous few years on (but mostly off) the field, Tim Tebow has found himself a new job.

“I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity,” said Tebow. “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.”

Tim Tebow will begin with pregame coverage on the January 6th BCS National Championship Game. But, this does not mean he is out of NFL forever, he is still a free agent after the New England Patriots dropped him earlier this year.

“Tim is an SEC icon with a national fan base and broad appeal. He will be a significant contributor to the compelling content we will deliver with the SEC Network,” said Justin Connolly, ESPN senior vp programming, college networks. “Tim brings a wealth of knowledge about the game, the conference and the passion among SEC fans.”

On-air plans for Tebow on ESPN include appearances on SportsCenter, ESPN Radio and the network’s Heisman Trophy coverage.
