I don’t think Meyer believed he had a prayer.I think the TE thing was a fair shake to give him one last shot. I watched a bit of their game the other night and he looked pathetic. He threw maybe one of the worst attempts at a block that I’ve ever seen in my life and got tossed aside like a rag doll. He’d be a good addition to any team’s coaching staff though, IMO. He’s a great motivator. But I have no clue if he even wants to coach. The college football commentator job is pretty cushy and I’d suspect it pays better than a coaching job.
I think he brought him in for his attitude and helping get his message out knowing he wasn’t making the team. I’m guessing being a coach was the ultimate goal, if Tebow wants it.
