The SEC Network hired former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow for its new pregame show SEC Nation, ESPN announced Monday.

According to a release, Tebow’s primary role will be as an analyst for SEC Nation, the SEC Network’s traveling pregame show that will broadcast from a different SEC campus every week starting Aug. 28, 2014 with the Texas A&M-South Carolina game in Columbia, S.C..

Tebow will also contribute to a variety of ESPN platforms including SportsCenter, ESPN Radio and the network’s Heisman Trophy coverage.

Tebow will make his first appearance as an ESPN analyst during pregame coverage of the BCS National Championship between Florida State and Auburn on Jan. 6.

Tebow, 26, set SEC conference records for rushing touchdowns and total touchdowns in a season with Florida in 2007, his Heisman Trophy-winning year.

He spent three seasons in the NFL, throwing 17 touchdowns with a passing rating of 75.3 and was cut by the New England Patriots at the end of training camp this past summer.

Awesome! He will do better than the woman doing the Navy game today. She had the worst annoying voice I have ever heard on a game. Had to put it on mute to finish the game!

Jesus is lord, now and forevermore. God continues to bless Tim Tebow for his faithful witness. If you want your life to work, give it to Jesus. He's seen you at your worst but still loves you. He calls you daily to follow him on the narrow road to heaven. Come to your senses and come to Christ!

@otherworldTouchdown Jesus doesn't care about football. He's too busy worrying about poverty and sickness.
