Veteran offensive line coach Chris Foerster has resurfaced with the 49ers. Nearly two years after resigning from his Dolphins post after a video emerged showing Foerster snorting a white substance, the 57-year-old assistant is back in the NFL, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
The 49ers brought in Foerster this offseason, Laine adds, but did not announce the hire. He is not listed on the team’s website. He has assisted San Francisco’s staff on the game-planning front, per Laine.
Foerster has coached for seven NFL franchises since 1993 and was the 49ers’ O-line instructor under Jim Tomsula in 2015. He also spent five seasons (2010-14) as the Redskins’ O-line boss, and his tenure overlapped with Kyle Shanahan’s run as Washington’s OC.
Foerster resigned in October of 2017. This is his first job since. He was not suspended for the video, but that may be in the cards going forward.
