The Miami Dolphins are aware of a video which appears to show offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting a white powdered substance.
“We were just made aware of the video and will have no comment at this time,” the Miami Dolphins said in a statement.
In 1993, Foerster began his NFL coaching career with the Vikings, moving on to Tampa, Indianapolis, Miami, Baltimore, San Francisco, Washington, San Francisco (again) and Miami (again), under coach Adam Gase.
After a 1-4 start last season, Miami’s play has improved in large part due to improvement by the offensive line.
During the final 11 games of the 2016 regular season, Miami ranked third in the NFL with 132.9 rushing yards per game and tied for third with just 13 sacks allowed.
Foerster has mentored six players who were selected to 15 Pro Bowls – center Jeff Christy (2000), center Tony Mayberry (1996-99), guard Randall McDaniel (1993, 1995, 2000), tackle Jonathan Ogden (2005-07), tackle Joe Staley (2015) and tackle Trent Williams (2012-14).
With Miami, Foerster has worked with offensive linemen such as Branden Albert, Laremy Tunsil, Mike Pouncey and Ja’Wuan James, all former first-round draft choices.
