FSU_Timmy_Jernigan_2013 [1]A former Miami Hurricanes player and South Florida radio personality has been fired after he posted a bounty on a Florida State player on Twitter, following the Seminoles’ 41-14 win over Miami on Saturday.

Dan Sileo, a defensive lineman for the Hurricanes in the late 1980s and an on-air personality for WMEN 640-AM in Miami until his termination Monday, posted a photo of Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan on his personal Twitter account with an offer of $1,000 to anyone who “takes this kid out.”

After fans criticized the tweet, Sileo deleted it and suggested it had been a joke, but station management didn’t accept the excuse.
