Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster is in hot water after a video was posted on Facebook appearing to show him snorting lines of cocaine before a team meeting.
The Dolphins are investigating the video, sources told the Miami Herald. “We were just made aware of the video and will have no comment at this time,” a team spokesman told the newspaper.
The video was posted on Sunday by a Nevada-based model, Kijuana Nige.
“I really don’t do this often but… since it’s NFL Sunday let’s talk about these coaches folks 🗣,” Nige wrote. “Introducing Christopher Foerster Miami Dolphin offensive line coach 👋👋👋👋👋 Hey honey are you still high.”
She wrote, “Welcome to my NFL Sunday event” after posting the video. “A coach going skiing before practice,” she wrote.
Here’s what you need to know about the video and Foerster:
1. The Video Shows the Coach Snorting Multiple Lines & Talking About How He Misses the Woman He Sent It Too
You can watch the video above. It contains some graphic language.
In the video, a man identified by the Miami Herald as Dolphins coach Christopher Foerster, looks into the camera while holding a rolled up dollar bill. Three white lines of a powdered substance, which Nige said on Facebook is cocaine are in front of him on a table.
“Hey baby, miss you, thinking about you,” he says to the camera. He says he is about to go into a meeting and is “doing this before I go,” and then snorts a line of the substance. “I miss you, I miss you a lot,” he says, before snorting a second line.
“What do you think? Crazy?” he asks. “It’s going to be awhile before we can do this again. But I think about you when I do it. I think about how I miss you, how we got together, how much fun it was. So much fun. Last little bit, before I go into my meeting. That f*cked up babe? You think?
He then puts some of the powder on his finger tip and licks it, saying to the camera, “I wish I was licking this off your p*ssy.”
Foerster has not commented about the video. It is not clear when the video of Foerster was recorded. He has been a coach with the Dolphins since January 2016, according to the team’s website.
2. Nige Appears to Have Posted the Video in Defense of Colin Kaepernick & Other Players Who Have Protested During the National Anthem
Nige wrote on Facebook that she decided to post the video in connection to the reaction to NFL player’s protests of police brutality during the National Anthem. It was reported Sunday that Dolphins head coach Adam Gase has made it a team rule that players are required to stand for the Anthem. The video was also posted on the same day that Vice President Mike Pence walked out of an Indianapolis Colts game after San Francisco 49ers players knelt during the anthem.
Nige implied in one Facebook post that she has other videos she could make public, and mentioned former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was one of the first players to take a knee and was vocal about his reasons for doing so. Kaepernick, a free agent, has not been able to find a new team since his contract with San Francisco ended after last season, and many say his protests are the reason.
“They better leave ppl like Colin Kaepernick alone before I pick off more of’em you know this sh*t easy 4 me,” she wrote.
In another comment, she said, ” So is our N*gga Colin Kaepernick back good or what 🤷♀️😩😂😭👊🏿”
Dolphins players who do not wish to stand for the Anthem are required to stay in the tunnel during the ceremony, the Sun Sentinel reported. Owner Steven Ross told the newspaper that President Donald Trump has changed the focus of the protests from social injustice issues to patriotism, so he thinks it is better for players to stand.
“He’s changed that whole paradigm of what protest is,” Ross told the Sun Sentinel. “And I think it’s incumbent upon the players today, because of how the public is looking at it, to really stand and really salute the flag.”

5. The Woman Who Posted the Video to Facebook Says She Used to Date Him & ‘Everyday He Gets High’
Kijuana Nige, who also goes by Starr Sherrod, wrote on Facebook that used to date the coach, “you know I like old heads.” She wrote in the comments on the video, “Everyday he gets high maybe they will put his ass in rehab.”
After the video went viral, 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‼️”
She added, “if his ass was black they would be dragging him thru the (mud) face 1st.”
