Just because Tim Tebow failed as a Jets quarterback doesn't mean he would fail as a quarterback coach. That's the sound logic coming from the LFL at the moment. 

Yahoo! Sports happened upon a letter from Legends Football League (formerly Lingerie Football League) president Mitchell Mortaza that presents quite the lucrative offer. 

Not only does he want Tebow to serve as a quarterback coach but to do so on a national scale, sculpting the delivery of each arm in the budding female football league. 

I don't see how this could fail. Imagine a league where accuracy like this would be the norm. 

As was reported by ESPN, the New York Jets released Tebow Monday, bringing to an end the grand experiment that started with immense media clamor just a year ago. 

The report reminds us that the team had tried tirelessly to trade Tebow to another NFL team with no results, giving them no other option but to release the player who once electrified the fanbase. 

The fact that no team was willing to entertain a trade with the Jets has to signal that interest around the league for a quarterback who threw eight passes last season for 39 yards is at an all-time low. 

There are those who think he might have a future in the Canadian Football League, although Jim Popp, general manager of the Montreal Alouettes, tempered expectations that Tebow could come in and dominate north of the border, via USA Today

And so we have this offer from the LFL, which has to be seen as a clever marketing angle to piggyback on the biggest news item in the NFL this week. 

We echo the sentiment in the Yahoo! Sports article that Tebow is not expected to actually take a job working as a coach for the scantily-clad league. 

Snark aside, there is still room for Tebow to land with a professional team as an actual quarterback. Fox News breaks down some of the more likely destinations. 

Still, an athlete as polarizing as Tebow was bound to warrant some audacious job offers the minute he was released. Something tells me there are a great deal more on the way.
