Audit of Coach Hoffner Firing Sought

Todd Hoffner

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) – Top officials at Minnesota State, Mankato are asking state auditors to review the dismissal of head football coach Todd Hoffner.

The coach has returned to the university after he was reinstated by an arbitrator who said he was improperly fired.

Hoffner was dismissed by the school in 2013, several months after he was arrested on a child pornography charge that was later dropped. Hoffner returned to his old job, even though he had taken a similar position at Minot State.

In a letter to the Office of Legislative Auditor, MnSCU Chancellor Steven Rosenstone and President Richard Davenport said an independent review is warranted given the concerns raised about the process. The university was criticized for how it handled Hoffner’s case. The coach’s supporters said the school overreacted in the wake of the sex abuse scandal at Penn State.
