Coach Cleared of Charges No Longer At MSU, Mankato

Todd Hoffner

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The former head football coach for Minnesota State University, Mankato, who was cleared of child pornography charges, is no longer employed by the university.

School spokesman, Dan Benson, says Todd Hoffner, isn’t on the payroll. Benson declined Wednesday to say whether Hoffner was fired, saying it was a private personnel matter.

Hoffner was charged with possession of child pornography in August after school officials found videos of his naked children on his work-issued cellphone, which he had turned in to be repaired. A judge cleared him last November, ruling that the short videos of his children acting silly after a bath were not child porn and showed nothing illegal.

After the criminal case was dismissed, Minnesota State University, Mankato, officials removed Hoffner as head football coach and reassigned to an administrative role.
