R.E.M. bassist calls for UGA offensive coordinator to be fired ... during the game

Georgia is in the middle of its Liberty Bowl matchup with TCU, but one celebrity Bulldogs fan has already seen enough.

Mike Mills, former bassist for R.E.M. and noted Georgia fan, is tired of Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney. After a three-and-out in the second quarter, Mills wanted Chaney gone. Like immediately.

Mills’ tweet had people laughing on Twitter.

Mills was a founding member of R.E.M. when the band started in Athens.

At the time of the tweet, TCU led Georgia 16-7 with 9:15 left in the second quarter.
