WORLD Magazine - Tim Tebow is back in football-but he'll be behind a mic instead of under center. The former pro and college quarterback will be an analyst for the SEC Network, a new collaboration between ESPN and the Southeastern Conference that launches next August.

"Tim is an SEC icon with a national fan base and broad appeal," said Justin Connolly, ESPN senior vice president of programming for its college networks. "Tim brings a wealth of knowledge about the game, the conference, and the passion among SEC fans."

Tebow will appear on SEC Nation, the new network's traveling pregame show that will make its way to a different SEC campus each week next fall.
