When you lose your job, there's sadness. Depression. Frustration. And sometimes, from an unexpected quarter ... salvation.

Tim Tebow's out of a job. But on the very same day the Jets kicked him to the curb, the Legends Football League — the fancy new name for the former Lingerie Football League — came through with a job offer.

No, no, Tebow won't be in lingerie. Rather, he now has a standing offer from league president Mitchell Mortaza to serve as the national Quarterbacks Coach of the Legends Football League. (The females-only league has undergone a rebranding effort, including getting rid of the revealing outfits as shown above. And that's a good thing, because Tebow would probably have a tough time reconciling lingerie-clad quarterbacks with his faith.)

Here's the letter in full:

Now, we'd place the odds of this happening at only slightly higher than Tebow's winning percentage as a Jet, but hey ... at least the guy's got options.
