Then a video surfaced that rocked Foerster's reputation and cost him his job. She says the Dolphins coach contacted her while the team was in Oxnard, Calif.to practice before facing the Chargers on September 17. "Before he could do anything to me, I just felt that also needed to be exposed".
It's unclear when or where the 56-second video was made, or how it became public.
Gase was asked later Wednesday if he believed Foerster's apparent drug problem was limited to just him. "After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility and we accepted his resignation effective immediately". Gase even credited Foerster as a good coach who put in long hours and "worked as hard as he could" for the team. Sherrod said she has more damaging video and pictures ("It's just the tip of the iceberg", she said).
"Some of it is just watching [Nick] Saban over a seven-year period", Gase said.
Kijuana Nige, a model who says Foerster used her as "his cocaine platter" during their "month-and-a-half, nearly two months" in a relationship together, says her motive for posting the video of Foerster snorting what appears to be cocaine was to prove a larger point.
When Gase met with reporters Monday, he had not yet spoken with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross about the organization's latest embarrassing episode.
"He's disappointed, he's upset, he's mad at himself", Gase said. "But you've got to take the next step and move on".
Nige also said she isn't enjoying the "fame" that's come her way, telling ESPN that she and her friends are receiving death threats in the wake of posting the video.

Gase said he has known Foerster since 2008, when both were assistants with the San Francisco 49ers.
Rookie Eric Smith was the only offensive lineman to speak to the media Monday. "All I know is as a football coach and as a man, he was a great guy and a great leader". "It's an unfortunate situation". "I was dating him". "I don't remember anything quite happening every week. I'm still shocked by it".
Foerster did not respond to a request from ESPN to appear on the show. If he's not out there, we've got guys we have to shuffle around.
Before snorting the final line he says, "Last little bit before I go to my meeting".
She added that Foerster resigning, rather than being fired by the Dolphins, underscored her point. They planned an announcement later regarding his successor.
In tough times, Gase said he is leaning on lessons he learned from his father, Art, and Alabama coach Nick Saban, who gave Gase his first coaching job as an assistant at LSU in 2000. "But we'll rally. We'll find a way".
