Former Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster’s personal problems run deeper than the apparent drug habit that sparked his sudden resignation on Monday.
Foerster and his wife Michelle, a pediatric nurse, recently had two liens placed on their $625,000 St. Petersburg home as a result of unpaid tax bills adding up to $591,397.51, according to a Miami Herald report.
The liens stem from unpaid tax bills in 2010 and 2012, according to the Herald report, which adds that Foerster was sued by Wells Fargo in 2010 for not making his mortgage payments on the home.
Wells Fargo later sought to foreclose on the property but dismissed that action a month later when Foerster began making the mortgage payments again, according to the Herald.
Meanwhile, the Las Vegas model/dancer who posted the video of Foerster seemingly snorting a white powdery substance through a $20 bill has publicly defended her decision to do so.
In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, Kijuana Nige 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 athem, dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc. But y’all keep saying ALL LIVES MATTER STFU!!’’
Foerster was in the second season of his second stint with the Dolphins when he resigned in the wake of the video’s release. He was the team’s offensive coordinator in 2004 and was in his 25th season as an NFL coach.
The Buccaneers offensive line coach during head coach Tony Dungy’s tenure with the team, Foerster was regarded by many around the league as one of its best assistant coaches, but his future is now uncertain to say the least.
