The Tim Tebow-led “SEC Nation” will have a total face-lift this college football season, The Post has learned.
Bachelorette star/college football analyst Jordan Rodgers will be added to the show, as Paul Finebaum and Marcus Spears exit, according to sources. Meanwhile, Laura Rutledge is set to return as the program’s host that airs on the ESPN-owned SEC Network.
ESPN offered Ben Watson an SEC Network job that he turned down, while it has auditioned Shaun Alexander, according to sources.
ESPN declined comment.
Finebaum and Spears are leaving SEC Network’s version of “GameDay” on their own accord. Finebaum, who was on the program for six years, will continue on his radio/TV show and his many appearances on ESPN.
Spears is receiving a promotion as he will appear more regularly on the revamped “NFL Live.” Rutledge will host that program, as well.
Meanwhile, Rodgers, 31, will have a Kirk Herbstreit-type position on SECN. Herbstreit does ESPN’s “GameDay” studio show and then calls a game at night. Rodgers is expected to do the same on the SEC. His brother is Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers
