Florida quarterback Tim Tebow underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Monday morning to remove a bone spur and chronic inflammation. Tebow, who led the Gators to the BCS National Championship on Thursday with a 24-14 win over the Oklahoma Sooners, is expected to be able to throw within 3-4 weeks and is expected to be ready to play in spring practice. Tebow is left-handed, so the surgery is on his non-throwing shoulder. "The surgery went well," team physician Dr. Pete Indelicato said in a Florida news release. "He should be able to begin throwing in the next three to four weeks and a full recovery is expected." Tebow was originally injured during the 2007 Heisman season, and reaggravated the injury this season against Hawaii. Tebow announced Sunday at a rally that he plans to return to Florida for his senior season in 2009. Tebow threw for 231 yards and ran for another 109 in the FedEx Orange Bowl last week. He was named the game's offensive most valuable player. Tebow threw 32 touchdown passes in 2007, ran for 23 more scores and became the first sophomore to win the Heisman. This season, he completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,746 yards with 30 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also led the team in rushing for the second straight year, gaining 673 yards and scoring 12 times. Florida coach Urban Meyer said Sunday that receiver Louis Murphy and guard Carl Johnson also were going to have knee surgery. AP


Tim Tebow started to walk off stage, then called an audible. The Florida quarterback turned around, grabbed the microphone and told teammates, coaches and fans exactly what they wanted to hear. "Oh, by the way, let's do it again. I'm coming back next year," Tebow said. Tebow thrilled more than 40,000 at the school's national championship celebration Sunday by announcing plans to return for his senior season, with hopes of leading the Gators to their first undefeated season and fourth national title. "Overall, I just felt loyal to this place," Tebow said. "I feel like I'm a role model, and a lot of times people start things and don't finish them. I didn't want to be like that. I wanted to be loyal to the university. I wanted to finish what I started and play another year." Tebow threw 32 touchdown passes in 2007, ran for 23 more scores and became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. He did less this season, but accomplished more by leading Florida to its second national title in three years. Tebow completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,746 yards with 30 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also led the team in rushing for the second straight year, gaining 673 yards and scoring 12 touchdowns. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound left-hander was 18-of-30 passing for 231 yards, with two and two interceptions in Thursday night's 24-14 victory against Oklahoma in the Bowl Championship Series title game. He also ran for 109 yards, most of it in the second half. There was speculation he might head to the NFL, especially since he has talked about wanting a bigger platform to share his religious message and expand his community work, but Tebow said he never strongly considered leaving early. Coach Urban Meyer set him up with several NFL coaches to talk about his pro prospects. Although Tebow said he got mixed feedback, nothing he heard swayed his decision. "It was tough because some of that stuff is tempting at the next level and everything that goes along with it, especially ending on a great note ending with the national championship and moving on from there," Tebow said. "I love these guys and coach Meyer and this program too much and I feel we can still end on a bang next year." The Gators had three seniors in the starting lineup against the Sooners, meaning just about everyone could return next season. Receiver Percy Harvin and linebacker Brandon Spikes, fellow juniors considering turning pro, didn't address their futures Sunday. The deadline for underclassmen to apply for the NFL draft is Thursday. Meyer said assistant offensive line coach John Hevesy has decided to leave Florida for a job at Mississippi State. Offensive coordinator Steve Addazio also missed the celebration because he was in the hospital recovering from a knee infection. Meyer said Tebow's announcement clearly means a lot. "There's the functional football player part of it, but we all know it's much deeper than that," he said. "He is so good for college football. He is unbelievable. When my daughter texts me in the morning the Bible verse he has under his eyes it's good for college football, it's good for young people, it's good for everything." Tebow spent most of Saturday with Meyer and told the coach his decision late in the day. Not coincidentally, Meyer said he enjoyed his best night's sleep in a while. It eased Tebow's mind, too. "I wanted to get it done with because I could barely sleep as it is thinking about it and I just wanted to enjoy winning a national championship and not have to worry about this," Tebow said. "It was a little bit of a burden on me. I wanted to just get it done with and enjoy winning a national championship for a week or so." Still, Tebow wasn't sure how to announce his intentions. Meyer suggested rewarding fans who showed up for the celebration on a cloudy, drizzly day. Tebow obliged, but not until the very end of the 75-minute celebration. The day started with a replay of the title game, then everyone watched a highlight video of the season. Meyer introduced his seniors, his assistants and then handed things over to players. They quickly turned it into a combination of "Dancing With the Stars" and "American Idol," since safety Major Wright and defensive line coach Dan McCarney danced on stage and the team chaplain sang a cappella. Safety Ahmad Black delivered the best one-liners of the day. When asked about his fourth-quarter interception against Oklahoma, the one he ripped out of receiver Juaquin Iglesias' hands, Black said, "I think Iglesias might have to get in the weight room some more." When asked about holding the high-scoring Sooners to 14 points and 363 yards, both season lows, Black said, "Sixty points? Like Spikes said, Big 12 defenses are a joke. We'd have to play like 12 overtimes for them to score 60 points." Throughout it all, fans kept chanting, "One more year, one more year." Tebow laughed them off at first. He might have even duped some fans when he walked on stage to the "Superman" theme song and started thanking everyone. Then he called his audible. "It means a lot for our team, program, everything," offensive lineman Mike Pouncey said. "Tim's going to be a big key for us next year. We really need him. ... It's going to give us a big edge for next year. He made the right decision by not leaving and coming back." AP


Josh McDaniels agrees to a four-year deal with the Denver Broncos today. The man who ran the New England Patriots' high-scoring offense is taking over. McDaniels, the Patriots' 32-year-old offensive coordinator, agreed to a four-year deal to replace Mike Shanahan, who was fired Dec. 30 after 14 seasons with a 146-91 record. "Josh McDaniels is one of the finest people and brightest, most talented coaches I have ever worked with," New England coach Bill Belichick said in a statement. "Since joining us eight years ago, Josh performed a variety of roles and excelled in every one of them." Cornerback Dre' Bly was one of many Broncos players excited about the team's new head coach. "That's enthusiasm, man," Bly said, according to the Rocky Mountain News. "Coach Shanahan had a lot of respect. Guys looked up to him and had a good relationship. But with a guy like him, it's like with [Broncos assistant] Jeremy Bates -- exciting, enthusiasm. It's like what Mike Tomlin brings to Pittsburgh. He brings excitement to that team. It's good for our team. And I hope we respond to him." McDaniels reportedly already has started filling his staff with the Broncos. NFL.com reported that former 49ers head coach Mike Nolan is expected to join Denver as the team's defensive coordinator. AP


After seven seasons with the Colts, Tony Dungy retires saying this was the right moment to do so. "These seven years have been better than I could ever have imagined," Dungy, the only black coach to win a Super Bowl, said at a news conference Monday. "I just have to thank everyone." Assistant head coach Jim Caldwell will replace Dungy. On and off for five years Dungy has debated on the option to retire and spend more tme with his family. He said he and his wife discussed the decision. "We just felt this was the right time," Dungy said. "Don't shed any tears for me. I got to live a dream most people don't get to live." Dungy is the Colts' franchise leader in victories. He went 85-27 in the regular season and 7-6 in the playoffs, including the victory over Chicago in the 2007 Super Bowl. "You don't always get to go out on top," Dungy said, "and it's hard to go out on top." Dungy also spent six seasons in Tampa Bay, rejuvenating a moribund franchise and turning it into a perennial Super Bowl contender in the late 1990s and the early part of this decade. He left Tampa with a career record of 54-42 in the regular season becoming the winningest coach in franchise history there, too, and got the Buccaneers to the NFC title game in 1999. He's the only coach in NFL history to produce six straight 12-win seasons and 10 consecutive playoff appearances. Dungy always said he intended to retire by the time he turned 50, but hung around longer because he enjoyed the game and the Colts players. But his family priorities won out this time. His son, Eric, will be a high school senior in the fall, and those close to him thought Dungy wanted to accompany his son on college visits. AP
