MIAMI —

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.

The team is working to confirm when the video was recorded and its validity.

Foerster has been Miami’s offensive line coach in 2016 and 2017, returning to a franchise he worked for in 2004.

That season, Foerster held the role of offensive coordinator under Dave Wannstedt after Joel Collier resigned for health reasons.

The person in the video is addressing a camera and speaks of missing the person watching, and states that he is snorting the substance before heading to a meeting.

Foerster began his coaching career at Colorado State in 1982 before moving on to Stanford and Minnesota.

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.
