The Miami Dolphins won their game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, though the offensive line again struggled at times. Changes will be coming to the team, however, as, following the release of a video in which offensive line coach Chris Foerster is seen snorting line of a white powder in what appears to be an office at the Dolphins team facilities, the coach has announced his resignation from the team.

In his second stint with the Dolphins, having previously been the team’s offensive coordinator under head coach Dave Wannstedt, Foerster has been in the NFL for 24 years, and was hired as the offensive line coach by head coach Adam Gase in 2016.

Foerster released the following statement announcing his resignation through the team:

“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 Dolphins released a statement along with Foerster:

“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, which is circulating all over social media, was released by a Las Vegas dancer, who appears to be the woman to whom Foerster is speaking in the video.

Assistant offensive line coach Chris Kuper will likely be promoted as Foerster’s replacement.Kuper joined the Dolphins as an offensive quality control coach in 2016 before being promoted to assistant offensive line coach this year. He played guard for the Denver Broncos from 2006 to 2013.
