Auditor Review: No Right or Wrong in Hoffner Case
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A legislative auditor's report made no determination of right or wrong in the firing of Minnesota State, Mankato, football coach Todd Hoffner.
But the report released Thursday says that infractions that led to his firing were different from a child pornography charge that was later dropped. The report didn't go into details, citing data privacy laws.
The legislative auditor was asked to review Hoffner's case after the state arbitrator found he should be reinstated. The report says it was not trying to decide who was right - but noted that both sides think they were right.
Hoffner started his fifth season as football coach this year. His attorney, Christopher Madel, says the auditor's report lacks detail and omits Hoffner's side of the story.
