MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A former college football coach who was cleared in a child pornography investigation in Minnesota is the new head coach at Minot State in North Dakota.
Minot State spokesman Michael Linnell confirmed Thursday that former Minnesota State-Mankato coach Todd Hoffner was being hired. KTOE radio first reported the move.
Hoffner didn't immediately respond to AP telephone and email requests for comment.
Hoffner was caught up in a child porn investigation in 2012. He was cleared by a judge, but Minnesota State removed him as coach and later fired him.
At Minot State, he succeeds Paul Rudolph, who resigned on Jan. 2 after seven seasons to become the offensive coordinator at North Dakota.
