JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Doug Pederson has no interest in being coy. His straightforward approach with the Jacksonville Jaguars has been a welcome respite for players who endured an 11-month fiasco under Urban Meyer.
Tim Tebow, who led Florida to two national championships and won the 2007 Heisman Trophy, is among the former players making a first appearance on the College Football Hall of Fame ballot.
The National Football Foundation announced on Monday the players and coaches eligible for election into the Hall of Fame, and 11 of the 80 FBS players are debuting on the ballot.
ATLANTA (AP) — Demaryius Thomas overcame a troubled childhood. He managed to shine as a receiver in Georgia Tech's run-oriented offense. By the time his NFL career was over, he had earned five straight Pro Bowl honors and a Super Bowl ring with the Denver Broncos.
Tim Tebow was visiting with Auburn athletic director Allen Greene along with fellow members of ESPN’s SEC Nation crew when he got a text message from a friend last week congratulating him on becoming the head coach at Florida.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Dan Mullen is sticking with quarterback Emory Jones for Saturday’s game at Missouri and probably the rest of the season.
Jones is coming off a record-setting performance in a 70-52 victory against lower-division Samford.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Emory Jones did something no Florida quarterback has done since Tim Tebow. With backup Anthony Richardson cleared to return next week, Jones might have a tough time accomplishing the feat again.
Tim Tebow is confident Urban Meyer and Trevor Lawrence can turn the Jacksonville Jaguars around despite an 0-2 start.
“I just think that they have to stay the course and continue to work to improve,” Tebow said Thursday in an interview for next week’s AP Pro Football Podcast.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — It didn’t take Tim Tebow very long to realize Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson was different. Less than an hour, actually.
Tebow worked out with Richardson a few days after the freshman arrived on campus in January 2020.
The last time Florida beat Alabama, Tim Tebow was the Gators' quarterback and the team was on its way to a second national title under coach Urban Meyer.
Tebow is now retired and Meyer is coaching in the NFL.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Dan Mullen insists he has no quarterback controversy: Emory Jones is the starter, and Anthony Richardson remains the backup following a 35-14 victory against Florida Atlantic on Saturday night in which one clearly outplayed the other.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Emory Jones first landed on Dan Mullen’s recruiting radar seven years ago.
Jones was a high school freshman in LaGrange, Georgia, and Mullen was scouring the country for another spread quarterback at Mississippi State.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow's comeback and NFL career are over.
The Jacksonville Jaguars waived Tebow on Tuesday, parting with the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner who switched from quarterback to tight end in hopes of rejuvenating his pro football career.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars seemingly have the NFL market cornered on first-round flops.
Coach Urban Meyer has as many as eight (depending on the evaluator) of them on his 90-man roster and would have another had Pittsburgh defensive tackle Tyson Alualu not changed his mind after agreeing to a deal with Jacksonville during free agency.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow is one of the first to arrive at Jacksonville Jaguars practice. He jogs onto the field, stretches a little, catches footballs from a Jugs machine, then finds his usual spot in the team’s warmup lines.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Five-time Pro Bowl receiver Demaryius Thomas announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday following a decade-long career.
“I'm just happy to say I'm done and it did me well,” Thomas said in a video on the Broncos' Twitter account.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow caught touchdown passes from Trevor Lawrence and Gardner Minshew on Thursday, showing signs that reviving his NFL career as a tight end is far from a publicity stunt or personal favor.
Trevor Lawrence is excited to have Tim Tebow as a teammate.
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed Tebow last week, giving the former Florida star and 2007 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback an opportunity to revive his pro career as a tight end catching passes from their rookie No.
Maybe Colin Kaepernick should learn a new position.
Tight end, perhaps.
From the looks of things, that appears to be a pathway back to the NFL for ex-quarterbacks who haven't played the game in a very long time.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are, at the very least, no longer the NFL’s most irrelevant franchise.
Urban Meyer. Trevor Lawrence. Tim Tebow.
The rebuilding Jaguars now have three of college football’s biggest stars — and two of its most polarizing figures — from the past 15 years after Tebow signed a one-year contract Thursday.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Former NFL player Tim Tebow joined Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee at the state Capitol on Thursday to announce a multimillion-dollar partnership to fight human trafficking.
Tebow, who is considering a return to football with the Jacksonville Jaguars, is due for an infusion of $1.2 million into his foundation in the upcoming Tennessee state budget.
Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer are apparently getting back together, this time in the NFL.
The former Florida star and 2007 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback is expected to team up with his college coach by signing a one-year contract to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the NFL Network reported Monday.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Shortly after selecting Trevor Lawrence to open the NFL draft, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer turned to general manager Trent Baalke and jokingly asked about making a move for Florida tight end Kyle Pitts.
Memphis quarterback Brady White has won the William V. Campbell Trophy given to the top scholar-athlete in college football.
White was one of 12 finalists for the Campbell Trophy selected by the National Football Foundation.
College football loves its awards.
Each position has its own hardware and multiple players of the year are chosen, including by The Associated Press.
As with everything related to college football in a season already disrupted by the pandemic there is uncertainty about when the awards will be ...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Dan Mullen is unbeaten against Florida State. Most of his players can't say the same.
The eighth-ranked Gators (9-2) have dropped four straight games at home to their biggest in-state rival, a decade-old skid they hope to end Saturday night in the Swamp.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Jalen McCleskey scored on a 53-yard catch-and-run with 3 seconds left, and Tulane rallied from a 21-point deficit to beat Houston 38-31 on Thursday night.
After Houston tied it at 31 with 21 seconds remaining, Tulane appeared to be content to go to overtime, but a fake kneel-down led to an 18-yard run by Amare Jones.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow has been reassigned to minor league camp by the New York Mets after hitting .267 with one RBI in eight spring training games.
The 31-year-old outfielder attended big league camp for the second straight year and is expected to start the season at Triple-A Syracuse.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy grew up idolizing Tim Tebow.
After a phenomenal freshman season, perhaps it was more than serendipity that the Cyclones awarded Purdy No. 15, which Tebow wore at Florida, when he first arrived on campus.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Lucas Krull grew up idolizing Tim Tebow, a left-handed quarterback big enough to play tight end.
So imagine how wide-eyed Krull was when Tebow spoke in the locker room before Florida's game against LSU.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks finally got to see how a jump pass is supposed to look.
Franks scrolled through his phone after the team's season opener, a 53-6 win against overmatched Charleston Southern on Saturday night, and realized he needed to check out two of Tim Tebow's most memorable passes.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Two-time national champion and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow will be inducted into Florida's ring of honor, becoming the sixth player to receive the honor.
The school announced Wednesday that Tebow will be recognized during the LSU-Florida game on Oct.
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) — Tim Tebow is holding his own as he tries to make his way up the minor league ladder in the New York Mets farm system.
He went 2 for 15 to start the season with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies of the Double-A Eastern League.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow arrived at the New York Mets spring training camp on Sunday, and the attention immediately turned to whether the quarterback who became an outfielder could make it all the way to Citi Field in the future.
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Josh McDaniels didn't know what he didn't know.
In 2009, he was the baby-faced 32-year-old prodigy plucked out of Bill Belichick's roost and Tom Brady's shadow to serve as Mike Shanahan's replacement in Denver, holding down two jobs he'd never had: head coach and de facto general manager.
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Oklahoma Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield's arrival at the Senior Bowl has been delayed.
Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage said Monday the quarterback went home to Austin, Texas for a "personal family matter".
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson is losing another backup quarterback with Tucker Israel's decision to leave the program.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — New Florida coach Dan Mullen has his dual-threat quarterback of the future, maybe even the now.
Emory Jones, of Franklin, Georgia, signed a national letter of intent with the Gators on Wednesday.
NEW YORK (AP) — Baker Mayfield took a unique road to the Heisman Trophy, a long and winding climb from walk-on to one of the most accomplished players to ever play college football.
The brash, flag-planting Oklahoma quarterback became the sixth Sooner to the win Heisman on Saturday night in one of the most lopsided votes in the 83-year history of the award.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Dan Mullen spent the last 13 years in the Southeastern Conference. He cultivated offenses. He developed quarterbacks. He celebrated two national championships. He turned former league laughing stock Mississippi State into a title contender.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow plans to return to the New York Mets' organization next season. But first, what will he do when the St. Lucie Mets' minor league season ends Sunday? Is there any chance of more baseball in the Arizona Fall League or somewhere else for the rookie outfielder?
