Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster has resigned after a video surfaced online showing him snorting a white, powdery substance, the New York Daily News reports.
In a statement, following his resignation from his position on head coach Adam Gase‘s staff, Foerster said that he plans to seek help.
“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” Foerster said. “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 Dolphins put out a statement of their own:
“We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior,” the team said. “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.”
The woman who posted the video to Facebook said Foerster sent it to her “professing his love.” Kijuana Nige, a Nevada model, has since deleted the post, which refers to the substance as “blow,” a common slang term for cocaine, and slams those who are defending Foerster’s actions but criticizing black players who kneel during the national anthem.
“The white people mad at me like I forced blow down this man’s nose and like I recorded it on that low,” Nige wrote.
“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. But y’all keep saying ALL LIVES MATTER STFU!!”
