If this baseball thing doesn't work out for Tim Tebow, at least he will still have his day job.

ESPN just announced it has inked Tim Tebow to a multi-year contract extension, enabling the former Heisman Trophy winner to continue his role as a college football analyst for the SEC Network and other ESPN platforms.

A prominent figure on the SEC Network's traveling pre-game show SEC Nation, Tebow is becoming a broadcasting fixture at ESPN. He's been with the network since 2014.

“Over the last three years ESPN and the SEC Nation crew have become like family,” said Tebow in a press release. “I love the passion that SEC fans bring to our set every Saturday morning and I look forward to continuing to share my own love of the game with fans on ESPN and SEC Network.”

His NFL days behind him, Tebow is currently pursuing a professional baseball career with the Columbia Fireflies, the Low-A affiliate of the New York Mets. He is hitting .242 with two home runs and nine RBI in 26 games.

ESPN confirmed that Tebow's baseball exploits won't stop him from fulfilling his broadcasting duties.
