The veteran coach issued a statement in which he accepted "full responsibility" for his now-public actions.

Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster quit his job this week after a bizarre video surfaced on social media, apparently showing the long-time football big snorting some badly chopped lines while making creepy pronouncements to the camera. 

“Hey babe, miss you, thinking about you,” the line coach says at the start of the video. “How about me going to a meeting and doing this before I go?”

Then, he blows through three lines of an unidentified white powder, continuing the conversation with the camera. 

“It’s going to be a while before we can do this again. Because I know you’re going to keep the baby,” he says. 

“I wish I was licking this off your p——,” he adds, winding up the video after 56 regrettable seconds. It’s not clear when the footage was taken, but the now-deleted Facebook post began making rounds online this week after Las Vegas model Kijuana Nige shared it, claiming Foerster sent her the clip “professing his love.” 

"The white people mad at me like I forced blow down this mans nose and like I recorded it on tha low," Nige wrote in a follow-up post Sunday. "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‼️"

It’s not clear what the nature of the married man’s relationship with the 33-year-old model is, but hours after the footage went viral, Foerster resigned. 

“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” he 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 was in his 25th season with the NFL. His previous stints included work as an assistant coach for the Ravens, Colts, Buccaneers, Vikings, the 49ers and Redskins. He was valued at upwards of $2.5 million a year, making him one of the league’s highest-paid coaches.

“We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior,” the Dolphins said after the video went viral and Foerster threw in the towel. 

“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.”
