You remember Chris Foerster? You know, the guy who was caught on camera doing sniffing cocaine up his nose while he was the current Miami Dolphins offensive line coach.
Even that couldn’t end his coaching career. According to ESPN, Foerster has now accepted a job with the San Francisco 49ers.
“Chris Foerster, the former Miami Dolphins offensive line coach who resigned after video surfaced showing him snorting a white powdery substance, has found his way back into coaching, taking a job with the San Francisco 49ers, two sources told ESPN on Friday.
Foerster, 57, joined the 49ers during the offseason, but the hiring was never announced, nor is Foerster currently mentioned on the 49ers’ team website. He assists the coaching staff with game-planning, the sources said.
This is the first job Foerster has taken since announcing his resignation Oct. 9, 2017, vowing to seek professional help for drug and alcohol addiction. Prior to his resignation, he was among the NFL’s highest-paid assistant coaches, earning a salary between $2.5 million and $3 million a year.”
At the time of him leaving the Dolphins job in 2017, Foerster was said to be seeking help for his issues with substance abuse. I guess he got those corrected and ready to move on with his life.
