WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Chris Foerster, Miami Dolphins offensive line coach has tendered his resignation.
- The resignation came after an online video surfaced on Oct. 8 that shows Foerster snorting what looks like cocaine before a team meeting.
- The Dolphins issued a statement saying that they were made aware of the disturbing video and accepted the coach’s resignation the next day.
Chris Foerster has resigned as Dolphins’s coach after Kijuana Nige, a Las Vegas model posted a disturbing video online showing the coach snorting multiple lines of cocaine before going to a team meeting.
“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,” the former coach said in a statement on Oct. 9.
Nige wrote on Facebook that she shared the disturbing video after Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross changed his stand on NFL anthem protests. Ross originally was quoted saying that he was backing his players and the right to protest. Later on, he changed his mind and warned his players that he wouldn’t allow any display of disrespect towards the flag and the national anthem.
This is what Nige wrote on Facebook that she later on deleted: “So quick to make excuses for him but will roast a minority player over an anthem, dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc. But y’all keep saying ALL LIVES MATTER STFU??… if his ass was black they would be dragging him thru the face 1st.”
This is the Dolphins’ official 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.”
Foerster had 24 years of coaching and has been with the Dolphins since 2016. The team’s head coach is Adam Gase.
