Tim Tebow is headed back to the SEC Network.
ESPN announced Wednesday that the former Florida great is returning to his role as an analyst on “SEC Nation,” the network’s traveling pregame show, starting on Saturday. Tebow spent last season on the show, but he left his post in April to pursue an NFL career with the Philladelphia Eagles.
ESPN released a statement upon Tebow’s departure that made it clear they would be interested in bringing him back in the future. “Tim developed quickly into an excellent analyst,” ESPN Executive President John Wildhack said. “He has a home at ESPN when his playing career is done.”
Tebow is one of the most decorated college football players of all-time. During his four-year Florida career, he threw for 9,286 yards and 88 touchdowns passing and also rushed for 2,947 yards and 57 touchdowns rushing. He won the 2007 Heisman Trophy and helped the Gators win two national championships (2007, 2009).
