Foerster wants to coach again, so this is all part of the redemption story. It isn’t that I don’t believe he shouldn’t get a second chance, but one has to wonder if he didn’t have the complexion for protection would fluff pieces be coming out about him on NFL.com.
Here is what he had to say about his cocaine binge.
He met the woman who eventually leaked the infamous video, Kijuana Nige, through a backpage ad while bored in California this past September with the Dolphins, who’d been displaced by Hurricane Irma. They partied together for two days, he says. By the time Foerster made the video in late September, he says he had used cocaine for eight or nine consecutive days and realized upon boarding the team plane to London, where the Dolphins played the Saints on Oct. 1, that he’d done too much.
Foerster says the video preceded a trip to the airport — not a team meeting, as he said on the tape, which he barely remembers making. “I was so messed up at the time,” he says now. Even though he’d sometimes come straight into the office at 4 a.m. from the night out, “I never ran a meeting (high), never at my job, I was never under the influence.” In Foerster’s drug-twisted logic that day, he wanted to get rid of his stash, stay awake on the plane to get work done and sleep after practice the next day.
Foerster says that was the last time he used cocaine, though that doesn’t mean he’d kicked the habit. It was just two weeks later the video came out, and Nige began a mini-media tour in which she said, among other things, that releasing it was a statement against white privilege. (Foerster doesn’t dispute Nige’s version of events, though he says because of his drug use, he doesn’t clearly recall all of their conversations.)
