A video surfaced on Facebook Sunday night that appears to show Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting a powdery white substance before meetings. On Monday, Foerster resigned.

The Dolphins were reported to have been investigating the video last night and were able to conclude that Foerster was in the video, and in the wrong.

Foerster released a statement, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions. 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 team also released a statement, saying it had no tolerance for his actions:

“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. Although Chris is no longer with the organization, we will work with him to get the help he needs during this time.”

The video shows Foerster sitting at a table and looking into a camera as he speaks, with lines on the table.

“How about me going into a meeting and doing this before I go?” he says. He then uses a rolled up $20 bill to snort the lines of the white powdery substance off the table.

The video was released by Las Vegas dancer Kijuana Nige. She posted a statement on Facebook on her reasoning for releasing the video in a now-deleted post:

"The white people mad at me like I forced blow down this mans nose and like I recorded it on tha low. No those are his habits and he recorded himself and sent it to me professing his love. So quick to make excuses for him but will roast a minority player over an athem, dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc. But y'all keep saying ALL LIVES MATTER STFU‼️"

Foerster was in his second season with the Dolphins, after coming over from the San Francisco 49ers for the 2016 season.
