Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigned Monday, a day after an incriminating video made its way to Facebook.

“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," Foerster said in a statement.

The Facebook video apparently shows Foerster snorting an unknown substance. In the video, Foerster is seen snorting the substance and then looking directly into the camera.

Kijuana Nige posted the video on Facebook Sunday with the caption, "I really don't do this often but... since it's NFL Sunday let's talk about these coaches folks. Introducing Christopher Foerster Miami Dolphin offensive line coach. Hey honey are you still high?"

Nige told the New York Daily News she did it for social injustice.

Facebook has pulled the video from their site.

The Dolphins held a news conference at 11 a.m. to discuss the matter.

“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 team said in a statement on Monday.

At this time, it is unclear when the video was taken or where it originated from.

Foerster made almost $3 million a year.
