Chris Foerster has resigned as offensive line coach for the Miami Dolphins.
Just hours after the Dolphins announced an investigation into a video that showed the 55-year-old coach snorting lines of white powder, Foerster stepped down from his position with a prepared statement.
“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” Foerster said, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “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 issued a statement of their own on the matter.
“We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior. After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility and we accepted his resignation effective immediately,” the statement read.
“Although Chris is no longer with the organization, we will work with him to get the help he needs during this time.”
Foerster has served as an NFL assistant coach since 1992.
The veteran assistant, who is in his second stint on the Dolphins staff, has also coached for the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins.
