Chris Foerster, who turns 56 on Thursday, 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, looking like Tony Montana in the last scene of Scarface, snorting an unknown powdery substance while at work at some point in his NFL career.
“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 Him, For The Culture
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 account says. “So quick to make excuses for him but will roast a minority player over an anthem [sic], dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc.”
And while the actual video was visible on Nige’s Facebook page Monday morning, it apparently was removed from public view just before noon.
Foerster becomes the latest victim in the keeping it real goes wrong on camera. Stay off those cameras folks. Use in moderation. Foerster is learning the hard way and he is also learning, these 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 in the world dominant web.
