Amid a shocking video in which Miami Dolphins’ assistant coach Chris Foerster could be seen snorting a white powdery substance, the former offensive line coach resigned Monday.
In the video, Foerster can be seen using a rolled up $20 bill to snort the substance. This happened before he went into the team meeting. Dolphins head coach Adam Case revealed in a press conference that he became aware of the video Sunday night at about 10:45 when he got a call from general manager Chris Grier. The video was posted on Facebook by a Las Vegas dancer named Kijuana Nige, according to SB Nation. Gase said that it’s not been fun dealing with the situation.
About Chris Foerster
Foerster has been a coach since the early 1980s. He got his first coaching job in 1982 when he became a graduate assistant for the Colorado State Rams football team. He eventually landed his first professional coaching job in 1993 when he joined the Minnesota Vikings to be their tight ends coach and assistant offensive line coach. Foerster joined the Dolphins’ coaching staff in 2004 and became their offensive coordinator. He later served on other NFL coaching staffs but came back to the Dolphins in 2016 to serve as their offensive line coach.
Foerster accepted full responsibility for his actions and said he would get help.
“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions. 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.”
