This morning I’d like to take a more in-depth look at an article on FactoryOfSadness.com, where writer Jared Mueller talks about Tim Tebow’s current options as it pertains to the state of Ohio. After running over the possibilities of joining the Browns, Bengals and AFL Cleveland Gladiators, Mueller addresses the concept of Tebow potentially coming to Ohio State as a coach on Urban Meyer’s staff.

I’m neither condoning nor mocking this idea, but it’s certainly one worth pondering. While it’s an unlikely scenario, Tebow could potentially work quite well under Meyer. Tebow had limited success in the NFL, but is still considered one of the greatest college football players of all time. He thrived while playing under Meyer at the University of Florida, winning a Heisman Trophy and playing on two National Championship teams.
Of course, I’d never assign Tebow to work with Braxton Miller on his throwing motion, as that’s perhaps the one key trait that’s hindered Tebow’s NFL career to this point; his throwing motion is one of the worse in the NFL today. However, Tebow is a phenomenal athlete, and his Heisman Trophy speaks for itself. So pairing him with Miller, a Heisman Trophy candidate this season, could actually really benefit the Buckeyes quarterback as he looks to take his running game to the next level.
Again, the chances of this happening are slim to none, but would I take Tebow on the coaching staff? Sure, why not.
