Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity comes under criticism from a local chain restaurant.

ATHENS — Over the weekend, a message critical of Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity appeared on a sign outside a Subway restaurant in Athens. After at least one person complained, the message was removed.

The sign appeared on the Subway on Prince Avenue in Athens. It read in block letters: “NEW UGA ATHLETIC DIRECTOR WANTED. APPLY HERE. GO DAWGS.”

The sign as of Monday morning:

This isn’t the first time McGarity has been called out by a local establishment. After the firing of Mark Richt, a bar put up a sign saying  “we have beer as cold as Greg McGarity’s heart.”
