As if he needed more, Chris Foerster has IRS problems

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.

  1. Under Meals and Entertainment on Form 2106, Vegas Call Girls are Tax Deductible. (Its a joke, but actually true)

    Anyway, why is Gase getting blamed for this? The GM hired him. Gase has done a decent job with Ajayi and Landry attitudes and this year with The Timmons saga. His Play-Calling is questionable however…

  2. “The fist thing that popped in my head was ‘why are they looking into this nobody loser’s tax returns?”
    ______________

    The first thing that popped into my head from this comment was “Why would anybody want this loser to get away with cheating on his taxes to the tune of $590K?”

  3. Someone needs to step in and help this man get his life back on track.

    You don’t become an assistant coach in the NFL without once having the drive to be successful, making something of your life, and doing what your passionate about. He’s obviously made some terrible choices but someone needs to step in and help him up, because this is the type of stuff that makes people believe they don’t have any options, if you know where I’m going with that.

    Why single him out? There are millions of people who won’t make a fraction of $2.5 to $3 MIL in their lifetimes who have the same (and worse issues) and who can afford rehab about as much as you or I can afford a solid-gold Cadillac and who don’t already have a billion-plus organization behind them.

  5. I don’t feel sorry for the coach, he made his decision, I feel for his kids, and perhaps for his wife. We will learn more as the dirt comes out. Sad for his family. Bill
