Dolphins O-Line Coach Chris Foerster Resigns After Video Shows Him Snorting White Powder
Woman who posted the video on Facebook says she did it because 'ALL LIVES MATTER.'
Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigned on Monday, following the release of a video on social media that shows him snorting coci, reports ESPN.
Foerster said that he will seek professional help. In the video, he is seen using a $20 to snort the white powder off a table while speaking into the camera. He says, “Hey, I miss you. … Thinking about you. … How about me going to a meeting and doing this before I go,” according to ESPN.
A woman named Kijuana Nige put the video on Facebook and said she unhappy about the way that NFL’s protesting players were being treated, according to CBS Sports.
In a statement, Foerster says that he accepts full responsibility for his actions, according to ESPN. “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.”
This was Foerster’s second season with the team, and second time working for them, reports ESPN. The team also released a statement, saying they will work with him to get him the help he needs during this time. Foerster, 55, was one of the highest-paid assistant coaches in the NFL, with a salary valued between $2.5 million and $3 million a year.
According to ESPN, this marks the second time in recent years that a Dolphins offensive line coach has been involved in a controversy. The Dolphins fired Jim Turner in 2014 after an investigation into the bullying scandal in the team’s locker room.
