As the Inquisitr previously reported, former National Football League quarterback—and still NFL hopeful—Tim Tebow is considering a career in broadcasting if he is unable to get his playing career back off the ground.
TheWrap reveals further details of Tebow’s representation deal, as tweeted by NFL insider Ian Rapoport. Already signed to the Creative Artists Agency for his football activities—overseen by agent Jimmy Sexton, Tim Tebow now deals exclusively with CAA for all aspects of representation. His off-field interests, including personal appearances, endorsements and licensing, TV and film, were previously managed by William Morris Endeavor, but, with the deal, all of the eggs from the golden goose that is Tim Tebow will be in one big CAA basket.
Tim Tebow would make an excellent college football broadcaster, as college is the realm mention in Rapoport’s tweet. Tim is a well-spoken young man and has a clear understanding of college football; they don’t give out those Heisman Trophies to just anyone. And no matter what conference he’d be assigned to or on what network—although SEC games on a four-letter network seems the most likely, Tebow’s devoted fans would turn out in droves to hear him call a game, making him a genuine ratings boon.
Roger Simmons of the Orlando Sentinel speculates that it could be great timing for Tim Tebow to start popping up during the NCAA college football bowl season. George Diaz, his colleague at the Sentinel, thinks Tim Tebow is needed more at his alma mater, the University of Florida.
The floundering Gators need an inspirational role model. They need another voice besides Will Muschamp barking in their ear (that’s not going so well). They need someone with the college street cred that includes two national titles and a Heisman Trophy to show them the way.
In other Tim Tebow news, First Coast News reports that the opening of his hospital venture in the Philippines will not be delayed by the recent super storm, Typhoon Haiyan, welcome news amid all the destruction wreaked upon the island nation in the last week. The 30-bed surgical hospital, currently under construction, was not affected by the storm, according to Tim’s brother, Robbie Tebow.
