This morning Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster issued a statement publicly resigning from the team after a video emerged showing him appearing to snort cocaine.
“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," Foerster's statement read.
The whole debacle began Sunday, when Dolphins owner Stephen Ross changed his stance on the NFL protests, saying he no longer supported players kneeling and had changed his mind after President Trump made the protests "about patriotism." Dolphins Coach Adam Gase then required his players to remain in the tunnel during the anthem before Sunday's game rather than allowing them to kneel on the field.
In response to the move, Las Vegas-based model Kijuana Nige blasted the Dolphins organization on Facebook, along with posting a video allegedly showing offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting lines of cocaine in the Dolphins' offices before a meeting.
Nige wrote "Welcome to my NFL Sunday event" after posting the video, also adding "A coach going skiing before practice."
In the video, Foerster can be heard saying “Hey baby, miss you, thinking about you,” looking at the camera. He then says he is about to go into a meeting and is “doing this before I go,” followed by him snorting a line of a white powdery substance.
“I miss you, I miss you a lot,” Foerster says, before snorting a second line.
Nige said she obtained the video while the two were dating.

On another post on Facebook she wrote:
“The white people mad at me like I forced blow down this mans nose and like I recorded it on tha low. … No those are his habits and he recorded himself and sent it to me professing his love. 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‼️”
Nige also implied that she has other damning videos she may release if criticisms of Colin Kaepernick continue.
The Dolphins organization released a statement after today's events as well stating, “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.”
