Less than 24 hours after a video surfaced which showed Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting a white, powdery substance, Foerster has resigned from his position on head coach Adam Gase‘s staff.
In a statement (via the New York Daily News), Foerster said that he plans to seek help.
“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” Foerster said. “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 put out a statement of their own:
“We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior,” the team 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.”
