Tim Tebow Joining ESPN For College Football Coverage

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

Though his NFL career has endured some ups and downs, Tim Tebow will at least have a temporary job with ESPN as an analyst for college football games.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right? The man who was blackballed by the entire NFL for a variety of reasons in 2013 has four another gig. Tim Tebow, former quarterback of the Broncos, Jets and Patriots, has accepted a job at ESPN as a college football analyst. His initial role will be to cover the BCS National Championship game between Auburn and Florida State.

Even though Tebow's NFL career burned out like a white dwarf star, the shunned quarterback still believes that there is a shot for him in the pros going forward.

"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."

Some believe that Tebow could be a fit in Cleveland next year with the Browns if Josh McDaniels ends up being hired for the vacant head coaching gig. Aside from needing a coach, the Browns have had a decade and a half-long search for a quarterback and have yet to find s solution.

Regardless, for now, Tebow will be in front of the cameras and assume the role of media darling--one that he has been comfortable with since his days at the University of Florida. His insight on the National Championship game should be both entertaining and a ratings-getter.
