His hiring Wednesday comes two days after offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigned.

Foerster has not had any comment since his initial statement announcing his resignation, which was released by the Dolphins. "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".

It is unclear how old the video is or where it originated from.

Gase was asked later Wednesday if he believed Foerster's apparent drug problem was limited to just him.

In the video, a man says, "Hey, I miss you ..." In his new position of offensive line coach for the Miami Dolphins, he will now team up with assistant offensive line coach Chris Kuper to help get the Dolphins' offensive line on track. "I think some of it is just watching Saban over a seven-year period", Gase said.

Sherrod, also referred to as Kijuana Nige in interviews, said Foerster used her as a "cocaine platter" after contacting her for unspecified "entertainment" purposes.

During the course of the more than 25-minute interview, Nige said Foerster made a lot of promises but not a financial promise. Adam Gase, the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, told ESPN he is "processing" the situation. "But you've got to take the next step and move on".

The NFL has yet to make a full statement on the matter.

Gase said he has known Foerster since 2008, when both were assistants with the San Francisco 49ers.

DeGuglielmo, a 12-year coaching veteran in the National Football League, coached the offensive line in Miami from 2009 to '11, during Tony Sparano's final three seasons as head coach.

"To be completely honest, me and my best friend actually already had plans to record him someway regardless to expose him. We just felt like that was the first name that popped in my head".

Rookie Eric Smith was the only offensive lineman to speak to the media Monday.

Nige also claimed Foerster's off-field behavior isn't anything new.

"It's not that I don't like Chris". I saw no signs of it happening.

The video appears to show Foerster and the powder on the desk. "After I realized his habits and who he was and everything going on the system, he was going to get exposed". He then uses a $20 bill to snort the powdery substance off the table. "Right now it looks like he's kind of found his role and (we) thought he was doing well enough to deserve that opportunity to play an entire whole game", Gase said. We don't get paid the same amount as everyone else.

Before snorting the final line he says, "Last little bit before I go to my meeting".
