Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow is back on the dating market!

The celebrity quarterback of the New York Jets has reportedly called it quits with his actress girlfriend Camilla Belle. The couple had only been dating for two months before discovering that they just couldn't make the relationship work.

Tebow is a devout Christian who has made no secret about his plans to remain a virgin until he gets married. Of course, this isn't the first time the quarterback has been passed over this week. The backup quarterback lost his shot at being the starter when the team decided to give third string quarterback, Greg McElroy, a shot the starting position next Sunday.

With the news of the breakup, the sports star joins a growing group of celebrity sports couples who could not make the love last. Here are some of the celebrity sports couples who have called it quits:

Eva Longoria and Mark Sanchez: Before the New York Jets starting quarterback lost his job to Greg McElroy, he lost his lady love earlier this year. In October, the NFL star and former "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria decided to pull the plug on their short term love match after dating for several months. At the time his reps told US Weekly, "It was really about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends."

Danica Patrick and Paul Hospenthal: The racing superstar put the brakes on her marriage of seven years in November 2012. She announced the split on Facebook writing, I am sad to inform my fans that after seven years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage. This isn't easy, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that's how we will remain moving forward."

Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada: Blink and you missed it! The marriage of the NFL star and the reality television star was incredibly brief, but that can happen when the groom head butts the wife just weeks after the wedding ceremony. After showcasing their love on the VH1 series, "Basketball Wives", the couple was ready to take it to the next level with their own spin-off titled, "Ev and Ocho", until his arrest for domestic violence against his new bride. The groom went to jail for the night and the bride headed to divorce court. Their marriage was officially over two months later.
