Tim Tebow has signed a multi-year contract extension with ESPN to continue his role as a college football analyst on the SEC Network’s “SEC Nation.”
The former University of Florida standout has stepped away from the game of football but remains an icon of the sport — specifically in the college game and even more so in the SEC.
“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,'” ESPN senior vice president of event and studio production Stephanie Druley said. “His unique experiences within the SEC and his broad national fan base are huge assets to ‘SEC Nation’ and ESPN’s larger CFP coverage.”
Although the Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national champion has given up on his professional football career and is now playing minor league baseball with the Columbia Fireflies, he’s excited to continue his career on the sidelines every Saturday during the college football season.
“Over the last three years ESPN and the SEC Nation crew have become like family,” Tebow said. “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 a contributor at ESPN since 2014. He recently signed a minor league baseball contract with the New York Mets and finally landed on the Columbia Fireflies — an affiliate of the New York ball club. He will continue pursue his professional baseball career while also working his job as an analyst.
