More here. No word yet on whether he'll be hosting any evangelist ministry programs for the WWL.
 
I just can't see this guy offering anything other than rosy red, full-on fluff commentary on every single player he discusses. Nary a negative word shall be emitted from his mouth.

ESPN executives acknowledge that in his tryouts, Tebow's commentary usually started with a lengthy delivery and ended up off target.  They've hired a team of coaches in preparation for the '14 season, however.

The press release linked above has a further statement from Tebow:
 
 
“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.”
 
Uhhhh... ok, Tim.
