Tim Tebow Debuts on ESPN for 2014 BCS National Championship

(ESPN Screengrab)
In December, former Florida Gators and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow signed a three-year deal with ESPN's SEC Network to cover college football for the Worldwide Leader in Sports. On Monday, Tebow debuted on ESPN during the network's coverage leading up to the 2014 BCS National Championship.

Tebow won two National Championships while with the Gators and was later drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft. After a memorable playoff run with the Broncos in 2012, Tebow was let go when Denver acquired quarterback Peyton Manning during free agency the following offseason.

Since then, Tebow has spent time with the New York Jets and New England Patriots, playing in just two games since 2012. And though he has drawn the support of many former coaches and notable athletes such as New York Knicks forward Ron Artest (Metta World Peace), Tebow's playing days in the NFL may be over.

His contract with ESPN includes an out-clause in case and NFL team may come calling one day, but Tebow will remain a college football analyst for now.

"When I was six years old I fell in love with the game of football, and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC," Tebow said when ESPN announced his agreement with the network.

Pregame coverage of 2014 BCS National Championship will kickoff on ESPN tonight at 8 p.m. ET. All the information you need to know, including where to watch online and what NFL Draft prospects to watch for, can be found on
