The Miami Dolphins’ Offensive Line coach, Chris Foerster, has found himself without a job after a video surfaced of him snorting a white powder before heading into a meeting. Allegedly, Foerster recorded the video himself, and sent it to Kijuana Nige, a woman from Las Vegas.
In the video, Foerster is sitting in front of a small table with two lines of a mysterious white powder in front of him. He takes a twenty dollar bill and rolls it up before looking into the camera and saying “Hey baby, I miss you, thinking about you, how about me going to a meeting and doing this before I go?” He then places the twenty dollar bill in his right nostril and leans over the table, snorting up one of the lines.
“what do you think? Crazy huh? No babe, it’s gonna be a while before we can do this again, because I know you’re going to keep that baby, but I think about you when I do it, think about how much I miss you, how high we get together, how much fun it was, so much fun.”
“Those are big grains falling, but I miss you, I miss you a lot and-” he says as he inhales the other line. “what do you think? Crazy huh? No babe, it’s gonna be a while before we can do this again, because I know you’re going to keep that baby, but I think about you when I do it, think about how much I miss you, how high we get together, how much fun it was, so much fun.” Foerster says before finishing the last of the powder.
Before he ends the video, he licks the powder residue off of his pinky and makes a sexually explicit remark.
According to Nige, the message was Foerster’s way of “professing his love” for her. She was also critical of the response to the Foerster video, stating that “So quick to make excuses for him but will roast a minority player over an athem [sic], dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc.”
Foerster announced today that he was resigning from the Dolphins and issued the following statement: “I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions. I want to apologize to the organization and my sole focus is on getting the help that I need with the support of my family and medical professionals.” He had been a with the NFL for 25 years, and was reported by ESPN to be one of the highest paid coaches in the league, with an annual salary rumored to be somewhere between $2.5-$3 million.
The Miami Dolphins made the following statement: “We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior. After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility and we accepted his resignation effective immediately. Although Chris is no longer with the organization, we will work with him to get the help he needs during this time.”
