Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigns after video surfaces

Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigned Monday morning after a video surfaced showing him snorting an unknown white powder substance off a table while at work.

The Miami Herald first reported Sunday night the team was investigating the 56-second video that leaked online.

“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” Foerster said in a statement released by the Dolphins. “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.”

The Dolphins released a statement at the same time.

“We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior,” the team statement said. “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.”

The video apparently was taken in one of the Dolphins’ team offices.

Multiple sources identified the man in the video as Foerster, who is seen using a $ 20 bill to snort the powdery substance off a table.

“Hey babe, miss you, thinking about you,” Foerster begins in the video, before snorting the first of three lines. “How about me going to a meeting and doing this before I go?”

Foerster, who is in the second season of his second stint with the Dolphins, has worked 24 seasons in the NFL for eight teams.

Foerster, who turns 56 on Thursday, is one of the highest-paid assistant coaches in the NFL at a salary valued between $ 2.5 million and $ 3 million a year, according to ESPN.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase told ESPN on Sunday night that he just found out about the video and was processing the situation.
