According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Tebow has hired “prominent” broadcast agent Nick Khan, and could pursue a career in college football television.
Tebow is said to prefer analyzing college ball, but still is holding out hope a NFL team will come calling.
Tim Tebow hired prominent broadcast agent CAA’s Nick Khan to join Jimmy Sexton in repping him. If no NFL, will look at college TV jobs.

This is the most we’ve heard of Tebow’s career since the preseason, when he completed 11 of 30 passes for 145 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. The mediocre numbers earned him a pink slip from the Pats, and caused 31 other teams to shy away from the once-ballyhooed quarterback.
While TV likely isn’t Tebow’s sole preference, it would suit him particularly well. He’s regarded as one of the best college players in history, and a well-spoken individual who’s no stranger to cameras and studio lights.
It’s become absolutely clear that, despite what others think, Tebow has no interest in playing football in Canada.
