Tim Tebow and ESPN agreed to a multiyear contract extension, ESPN announced on Monday.

Tebow will continue his role as a college football analyst on “SEC Nation”— the SEC Network’s traveling college football pre-game show.

The former Heisman trophy winner will also be featured year-round on multiple ESPN Network shows as a commentator and analyst.

“Over the last three years ESPN and the SEC Nation crew have become like family,” Tebow said in a statement released by ESPN. “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.”

Tebow began appearing on ESPN in 2014 and is currently pursuing a professional baseball career as a member of the New York Mets’ low class-A affiliate the Columbia Fireflies.
