NFL: Tebow heads for TV booth after no club deal
New York: Tim Tebow, once a National Football League phenomenon as a quarterback, has signed a deal to become a television analyst after failing to land with a team this season.
A leading channel announced Monday that Tebow would work as an analyst on collegiate American football on the Southeastern Conference Network when that cable channel launches in August.
Tebow, however, will contribute to a variety of programs and make his television debut next Monday on the pre-game show before the collegiate American football championship game between Auburn University and Florida State University.
Tebow played for two US college championship squads at the University of Florida but found limited success in the NFL. He became a celebrity in part for his evangelical views and a widely imitated kneeling move that became known as "Tebowing."
In 2011, he began the season as a reserve but rallied the Denver Broncos to a surprise division title and playoff upset of Pittsburgh.
Tebow was traded to the New York Jets but threw only eight passes for them in 2012 before being released last April. He did a pre-season training camp with the New England Patriots before being dropped in August.
The channel said Tebow`s role would not preclude him from pursuing NFL playing opportunities.
