On Sunday, Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster found himself in hot water after his ex-girlfriend, model Kijuana Nige, posted a video of him snorting three lines of cocaine on Facebook as revenge for the team’s reversal of their support for the anthem protests.
Nige posted the video of Foerster with the explanation that he was snorting cocaine just before a meeting in his office.
“So quick to make excuses for him but will roast a minority player over an anthem, dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc,” Nige wrote on Facebook after posting the video. “But y’all keep saying ALL LIVES MATTER STFU??… if his a** was black they would be dragging him thru the [mud] face 1st.”

The timing of the video was no accident, as owner Stephen Ross just recently reversed course on supporting the anthem protests. He had previously supported them but changed his mind last Sunday, prompting Coach Adam Gase to keep three players in the tunnel during the national anthem rather than letting them protest on the field.
“Trump has made [standing for anthem] about patriotism,” Ross said before the Dolphins game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. “It’s so important if that’s what the country is looking at to look at [the protest] differently.”
Since the video was posted, Foerster has since tendered his resignation, saying in a statement on Monday, “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.”
