Tim Tebow Hot Commodity in College Broadcasting, Center of TV Bidding War Between Three Networks


Tim Tebow, TebowingFootball teams in the NFL may not be arguing over who gets Tim Tebow, but that doesn’t mean the former quarterback isn’t the most wanted man in other circles.

After being released by the Patriots prior to the 2013 season, the free agent saw his dreams of being a quarterback in the league fizzle as no teams came calling.

Tebow may not be gracing televisions in a football uniform anytime soon, but he will likely be making plenty of appearances on-screen as a college football analyst and it seems that everyone wants some Tebow time on their network, according to The Big Lead.

ESPN’s SEC Network (which will launch on Aug. 21, 2014), CBS Sports and FOX Sports have all reportedly expressed interest in Tebow joining their college football coverage, with a source reporting that ESPN already has a show in place for him should a deal be reached. In November, Tebow hired broadcast agent Nick Kahn to join his football agent Jimmy Sexton in representing him, and it is likely that the bidding war for Tebow’s talents in the booth will heat up in January.

Tebow may not have been able to find a home in the NFL, but it appears that the college football audience is more than willing to welcome back the Florida Gators star with open arms, and the Heisman Trophy winner can at least take solace in knowing he is a wanted free agent in at least one industry.
