The multiyear deal “will not preclude him from continuing to pursue playing opportunities in the NFL,” ESPN said in their statement.

“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 in a statement released by ESPN.

ESPN senior vice president Justin Connolly called Tebow an “SEC icon with a national fan base and broad appeal.”

Tebow will make his ESPN debut during pregame coverage of the BCS championship Jan. 6.

The 2007 Heisman winner led the Gators to two national championships before leading the Denver Broncos to amazing success during his second season. Tebow however went to the NY Jets, throwing only 8 passes before being cut. He was signed and released by the New England Patriots this season.
