The Dolphins have enough to deal with this year, such that an assistant coach resigning after video emerged of him snorting drugs with a $20 bill in a video message to a Nevada “model” isn’t the biggest hardship they’ve had to endure.
That being said, resigning after video emerged of him snorting drugs with a $20 bill in a video message to a Nevada “model” isn’t the only problem Chris Foerster has either.
According to Omar Kelly of the South Floirda Sun-Sentinel, Foerster and his wife are dealing with more than half a million in unpaid taxes.
Documents show that Foerster and his wife, who filed jointly last year, owe the Internal Revenue Service $591,397.51 in unpaid taxes going back to 2012.
Foerster was reportedly one of the highest-paid assistant coaches in the league, making between $2.5 million and $3 million per year according to ESPN. He has also coached for the Vikings, Buccaneers, Colts, Ravens, 49ers, and Washington.
Then there’s the matter of that joint filing. Foerster’s wife is a pediatric nurse, who studied addiction in college. They’ve been married since 1985.
Foerster said in his statement upon resigning that “my sole focus is on getting the help that I need with the support of my family and medical professionals.”
He may also need a good tax attorney.
