Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow will be joining Good Morning America as a contributor starting September 15, ABC announced in a press release on Thursday.

Tebow, 27, played college football at the University of Florida from 2007-2009, during which time he became the first underclassman to win the Heisman Trophy. Despite early success in NFL with Denver Broncos, Tebow struggled in subsequent stints with New York Jets and the New England Patriots.

In 2013, he joined ESPN's newly formed SEC Network as a college football analyst.

According to ABC, Tebow will help launch GMA‘s “Motivate Me Monday” series, which will focus on stories of "individuals and their amazing stories of triumph."

One wonders if Tebow will draw on his many motivational quotes for the segment.

You and I were created by God to be so much more than normal….Following the crowd is not a winning approach to life. In the end it’s a loser’s game, because we never become who God created us to be trying to be like everybody else.”
