Miami radio host Dan Sileo tweeted a threatening message about Florida State running back Devonta Freeman after Saturday night's game in which the Seminoles blew out the Hurricanes.

Sileo, a former Miami defensive lineman employed by 640 Sports, offered a bounty of $1,000 for any Miami player to injure Freeman during the probable ACC title game rematch between the two schools. Sileo also posted a picture of Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan in the offending tweet, apparently mistaking one player for the other.

Here's a photo of the tweet, via our own Tomahawk Nation:


640 Sports is investigating the incident.

Sileo is no stranger to controversies caused by his own terrible judgment, as he was fired earlier this year from 560 AM after suggesting Miami players stab the opposing quarterback after a loss to Kansas State. He was also suspended after a series of misogynistic comments directed towards Erin Andrews, including one tweet that said "Love Erin Andrews either naked or in a porn. Not at a sports desk."

The game itself got chippy, with a Miami player sticking his hands through the facemask of a Florida State player in what looked like an attempt to eye gouge.
