Tim Tebow, who won two national championships and the 2007 Heisman Trophy as college football’s best player while at the University of Florida, has been hired as an analyst for Walt Disney Co.’s ESPN and the SEC Network.

Tebow, 26, played quarterback in the National Football League from 2010 through 2012, yet was out of the league this season after being cut by the New England Patriots in August. The New York Jets had released him during the offseason.

Tebow agreed to a multi-year contract to be an analyst for the SEC Network, which debuts in 2014 and has a 20-year partnership with ESPN to air Southeastern Conference content, including approximately 45 football games annually. Tebow will also contribute to ESPN’s SportsCenter and ESPN Radio, and will make his first appearance as an analyst during pregame coverage of the Jan. 6 national championship game between Florida State University and Auburn University.

“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 part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC,” Tebow said in the statement.

Financial terms of his contract weren’t disclosed.

Tebow’s primary role will be as an analyst for SEC Nation, the new network’s traveling pregame show that originates from the campus of a different SEC school each week of the college football season.
