Woman says Dolphins coach Chris Foerster was doing cocaine at work
The woman who exposed Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster by releasing a video of him snorting cocaine shared many more details about their relationship and her motivation for the leak. She also says the coach is a habitual drug user who kept cocaine in his desk at work.
Kijuana Nige spoke Wednesday with ESPN Radio’s Dan Le Batard and Jon Weiner about her relationship with Foerster. She says the Dolphins coach contacted her while the team was in Oxnard, Calif. to practice before facing the Chargers on Sept. 17.
“He was calling for entertainment,” Nige told the hosts. “He did mention he wanted to party. We met multiple times. Chris Foerster used me as his cocaine platter. … I was dating him.”
Nige says Foerster was using cocaine habitually, including at work and everywhere the Dolphins traveled.
“This is a regular habit of his anywhere he goes,” she said. “Doesn’t matter if they’re in Miami or London or New York. I was invited everywhere they went. Everywhere they went he sent me other footage. That is not the only piece of footage. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. He was doing it at his desk. He was at his Miami office.”
Nige called Foerster a “drug addict” and says she was moved to release the video for two reasons. One was political, as we’ve previously explained. The other was because Foerster threatened her after he sent her one of the videos.
Nige described Foerster in warm terms, calling him a “good person,” but she says she wanted to expose him to show inequality in the way blacks are treated compared to whites.
Foerster’s family released a statement on Wednesday in which they said they were trying to get Foerster the help he needs. They also asked for privacy.

Foerster resigned from his job on Monday, less than a day after the video was published on social media.
