In the beginning of November, reports surfaced that Tim Tebow was pursuing NFL and college broadcasting jobs. He had hired prominent broadcast agent Nick Khan of the CAA.

Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead now has knowledge that Tebow will, in all likelihood, be a college football analyst come the 2014 season. The three networks in the running are ESPN’s SEC Newtork, CBS Sports and FOX Sports.

According to McIntyre’s sources, the SEC Network already has the makings of a show in place that includes the former Heisman Trophy winner.

ESPN’s SEC Network, which debuts on August 21, 2014, is planning its own version of ‘College Gameday’ and has settled on three names: Rece Davis (an Alabama grad) would be the host, the voice of the South Paul Finebaum would play the role of Lee Corso, and Tebow would be the show’s Kirk Herbstreit. A source says ESPN is currently searching for another former SEC athlete to fill the final spot.

Whatever network lands Tebow is banking on the fact that he would bring in enough viewers for cable providers to pick up the show.

Heading into the offseason, expect the bidding war for one of the most polarizing individuals in the nation to really heat up.
