Tim Tebow joins SEC Network, still pursuing NFL

ATLANTA (AP) - Tim Tebow has his next football job - talking about the sport on TV.
The Heisman Trophy winner and outspoken Christian has been hired as a college football analyst for the new SEC Network, but he still hopes to play quarterback in the NFL.
Tebow will appear on "SEC Nation," a pregame show that will travel to a different campus each week after the channel launches in August. ESPN, which runs the network, says the multiyear deal "will not preclude him from continuing to pursue playing opportunities in the NFL."
Tebow did not play in the league in 2013 after he was cut by the Patriots in August. In the span of just over one season, he went from a national sensation who led the Denver Broncos to the playoffs, to a backup, to out of the NFL.
Tebow will make his ESPN debut during pregame coverage of the BCS championship Jan. 6.
