Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigned from his post on Monday, Oct. 9, after a video surfaced of him snorting lines of a white powdery substance.

Kijuana Nige, a model, posted the video on Facebook. It was later deleted.

In comments to the original post, she linked her intentions for releasing the video to the ongoing struggles of Colin Kaepernick, who remains jobless after kneeling during the national anthem.

She also threatened to release more videos.

“If his a– was black they would be dragging him thru the [mud] face 1st,” Nige wrote, according to Fox News. “They better leave ppl like Colin Kaepernick alone before I pick off more of’em you know this s— easy 4 me.”

In another comment, Nige addresses some of the criticism she received for posting the video and says that Foerster sent the video to her.

“The white people mad at me like I forced blow down this man’s nose and like I recorded it on the low,” Nige wrote, according to Fox News. “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.”

Foerster resigned less than 12 hours after the video was released, New York Post reported.

“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” Foerster said in a statement. “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 coached the Dolphins offensive line since last season. Prior to that, he coached the 49ers for one year. Colin Kaepernick played for the 49ers during that time. It is unclear when the video is recorded.

The Dolphins released a statement about the resignation shortly after it became public.

“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.”
