Tebow Pursuing CFB Broadcasting Gigs?
With his NFL prospects looking more and more dire, former Florida star QB Tim Tebow could be looking at a return to the college game - as a TV broadcaster.
Most recently an offseason member of the New England Patriots, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner recently hired Nick Khan - a prominent broadcast agent at CAA - to join existing agent Jimmy Sexton in representing him. This is according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com:
Tim Tebow hired prominent broadcast agent CAA’s Nick Khan to join Jimmy Sexton in repping him. If no NFL, will look at college TV jobs.

The timing could be perfect. The SEC Network launches next August, which gives Tebow’s camp plenty of time to pitch the new channel on the benefits of having an iconic SEC star join their team.
