Tim Tebow is currently pursuing a professional baseball career with the New York Mets. Through 26 games, he’s batting .242 with 2 HR and 9 RBI with the Columbia Fireflies, the Mets Class A Minor League affiliate. But he’s also found time to hit a different type of home run, this from the broadcasting side.
ESPN announced on Monday that it has reached a multiyear contract extension with Tebow to continue as a college football analyst on SEC Network’s traveling pre-game show SEC Nation. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner will also continue his role in ESPN’s College Football Playoff programming, providing personal championship perspective and analysis across networks.
“Over the last three years ESPN and the SEC Nation crew have become like family,” Tebow told ESPN. “I love the passion that SEC fans bring to our set every Saturday morning and I look forward to continuing to share my own love of the game with fans on ESPN and SEC Network.”
Tebow has been an ESPN analyst since 2014. ESPN said that his role as a commentator with the company will not preclude him from continuing to pursue professional baseball opportunities.
