Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigns, hours after a video of him snorting cocaine went viral.
“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” Chris Foerster said in a statement. “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.”

Foerster was one of the highest-paid assistant coaches in the NFL, at a salary valued between $2.5 million and $3 million a year.
Over the weekend, the Miami Dolphins became aware of an internet video that shows Foerster doing his best Tony Montana impersonation by snorting an unknown powdery substance while at work, some point during his NFL career.
Dolphins had no choice
“We were just made aware of the video and will have no comment at this time,” a team spokesman said Sunday night. By Monday morning Foerster was out of a job. Clearly the Dolphins organization had to let him resign rather then straight out fire him.
This marks the second time in recent years that a Dolphins offensive line coach has been involved in controversy. The Dolphins fired offensive line coach Jim Turner in 2014 after Ted Wells’ investigation into the bullying scandal in the team’s locker room where Jonathan Martin was harassed by his teammates on the offensive line.
Kijuanna Nige Exposed Chris Foerster
Kijuana Nige, who posted a video of a Miami Dolphins offensive line coach snorting lines, is a Las Vegas model who says she’s offended by how kneeling NFL players are being treated, according to her Facebook account. Nige took to social media to blast offensive line coach Christopher Foerster, after the Dolphins organization told players to stand for the national anthem ahead of Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.
“The white people mad at me like I forced blow down this mans [sic] nose and like I recorded it on the low,” a post on Nige’s Facebook post says. “So quick to make excuses for him but will roast a minority player over an anthem [sic], dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc.” The video has been removed, but the damage has been done.
Forester Becomes the Latest Victim of the Age of Technology
Foerster forgot the one rule of being in a visible position, don’t get caught on camera. Foerster is learning the hard way and he is also learning folks ain’t loyal. When you put something incriminating on video and send it to someone, only the heavens know where it will end up on the world wide web.
Let this be a lesson to all, just say no to doing drugs, while the cameras are rolling, or no to drugs in general.
