Tim Tebow returning to SEC Network after latest NFL defeat


Tim Tebow gave it the old college try in his attempt to return to the NFL, but was once again unable to make the cut. The NFL’s loss is college football’s gain once again as he returns to a familiar post.

Tim Tebow didn’t have to scan the want ads for long after being cut by the Philadelphia Eagles. The Florida Gators legend will return to his chair on the set of SEC Nation, the SEC Network’s live traveling pregame show.

Tebow thanked the Eagles organization for giving him yet another shot at playing quarterback on a professional level on September 5, and then tweeted today that he’ll be making his return to the SEC Network.

Tebow actually does a good job on the live show, breaking down SEC football games and discussing the matchups. The chemistry with last year’s crew — including ESPN veteran Joe Tessitore, Paul Finebaum and former LSU standout Marcus Spears, along with field reporter Kaylee Hartung — was excellent, and provided an alternate view of the games in the SEC away from ESPN’s coverage on College GameDay.

This year, Tebow will be flanked by the same group of reporters and analysts, as well as former Alabama quarterback, Greg McElroy.

Honestly, this is a good move for Tebow, and great PR for ESPN and the SEC Network. Tebow is a beloved figure in the conference, and everywhere the show travels, his supporters show up in big numbers. His skills behind the microphone developed quickly, so the show loses nothing by adding his input to an already strong cast.

The next stop for SEC Nation is this Saturday in Nashville for the clash between SEC East rivals Vanderbilt and Georgia.
