Tim Tebow’s NFL Career Over? College Broadcasting Next?
Unable to find an NFL team to give him a chance, Tim Tebow's hopes of being an professional QB seem unlikely. However, he still has a future in sports... as a broadcaster?
According to The Big Lead, various sports networks are in a bidding war in hopes of wooing the 26-year-old into joining their college football broadcast team. CBS Sports, Fox Sports and ESPN are among those reportedly interested.
ESPN's SEC Network is slated to debut next August, and want its own version of "College Gameday," with Rece Davis as host, radio personality Paul Finebaum in the Lee Corso role and Tebow as the show's Kirk Herbstreit.
