Miami Dolphins Assistant Loses Job After Drug Video is Posted
Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigned on Monday, just hours after a 56-second video was posted on Facebook which showed him snorting a white powdery substance. While it is unclear when or where the drug usage video was made, it went viral on social media and led to Foerster’s resignation and announcement that he is seeking medical help.
“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” said the 55-year-old NFL assistant. “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.”
“We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior,” the team said in a statement made along with Foerster’s announcement. “After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility, and we accepted his resignation effective immediately. Although Chris is no longer with the organization, we will work with him to get the help he needs during this time.”
Foerster has been an NFL assistant since 1992, and joined Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase’s staff last year. Gase chose not to say whether or not Foerster’s resignation was voluntary.
“He’s disappointed, hes upset, he’s mad at himself,” said Gase. “It’s not fun, especially when you’re close to somebody. But you’ve got to take the next step and move on.”
