Tim Tebow Offered More Opportunities In Broadcasting, Not As NFL Quarterback
Tim Tebow is getting job offers all over the place — just none with an NFL team to play quarterback.
The former Heisman winner continues to prosper outside of the National Football League following his 2013 exit from the game. This time, Tebow will be hosting a new radio talk show in his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, according to the Sportscasters Talent Agency Of America.
“Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from the University of Florida and Nease High School, will join 1010XL’s The Drill morning show every Tuesday from 8 – 8:30 AM. Beginning this morning, October 7th, and throughout football season, Tim will join show co-hosts Dan Hicken and Jeff Prosser on Jacksonville’s top sports radio station for a weekly Tuesday’s With Tim segment to discuss the Southeastern Conference football season.”
1010XL is the home to Tebow’s alma mater Florida, so the thought of having him as part of their station seemed like a no-brainer.
“We are proud to welcome Tim Tebow to the 1010XL team,” Steve Griffin, 1010XL President and General Manager, said in a release. “We are excited for our listeners and sports fans who have followed Tim’s career and will enjoy hearing his expert opinions on the SEC. We are proud to be the flagship station of the Jacksonville Jaguars, the home station for JU and UNF athletics, and to be part of so much that matters to the fans of Jacksonville. 1010XL is excited to be a part of bringing Tim back to Jacksonville.”
Tebow is currently serving as a college football analyst for the SEC Network. And as reported by Inquisitr, Tim is also a contributor to ABC’s morning show Good Morning America as part of their “Motivate Me Monday” segment.
Tim Tebow won the Heisman trophy playing quarterback at Florida. He also lead his team to a national championship as the starter. Tebow put up record numbers in college, but his game never seemed to translate well in the NFL, despite leading the Denver Broncos to a playoff victory over Pittsburgh in 2011. His career came to an end after he was traded to the New York Jets the following season.
Since then, Tebow has been praised for his expert, objective analysis for the SEC Network. Still, Tim will always be a Florida Gator at heart. According to Fox Sports, Tebow recently criticized fellow SEC host Paul Finebaum’s Gator chomp. In the hilarious video, seen here from YouTube, Tim Tebow calls out Finebaum’s chomp, giving it a grade of F.
