Tim Tebow may be out of the NFL but he has reached Super Bowl week. The recently hired ESPN analyst will guest-host ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Tebow landed a job as a college football analyst with ESPN back in December. As ESPN and ABC are both owned by The Walt Disney Co., Tebow will apparently be involved in some corporate synergy just two days before Super Bowl XLVIII between the Broncos and Seahawks. The 26-year-old, who helped the Broncos win a playoff game in 2012, made his debut as an ESPN analyst earlier in January and nearly predicted the exact score of the BCS Championship Game.
After being released by the New England Patriots before the start of the 2013 season, Tebow wasn't able to find a new team. Despite joining ESPN, his contract will not keep him from making a return to the NFL. Whether he is on or off the field, interest in Tebow remains high. He was the most-searched athlete in 2013, according to search engine Bing.

NEW YORK (AP) — Tim Tebow will be a special guest on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday.
The 26-year-old Tebow is slated to appear throughout the two-hour live show, including a Super Bowl snack cook off featuring chef Emeril Lagasse.
Tebow won the 2007 Heisman Trophy at Florida and played three seasons in the NFL with Denver and the New York Jets. But the quarterback hasn't appeared in a regular-season game in more than a year.
He has signed on with ESPN to appear on the SEC Network's pregame show starting in August. He said in December that he trains five days a week for a return to the NFL.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, the brother of Broncos star Peyton Manning, is scheduled to appear on GMA on Wednesday.
