Tim Tebow hired as analyst for SEC Network

GAINESVILLE -- Former Florida quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow has been hired by ESPN as a college football analyst for the new SEC Network, which launches in August 2014. Tebow will begin with the network during its coverage of the BCS National Championship game on Jan. 6.

"I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity," Tebow said. "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 a part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC."

As part of a multi-year agreement, ESPN said Tebow's primary role will be as an analyst for SEC Nation, the network's traveling pregame show that will originate from a different SEC campus each week beginning Aug. 28, 2014. His new job does not preclude him from pursuing a job with an NFL team.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.
