MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A cloud of uncertainty hangs over two university football programs as they await word on whether Todd Hoffner will try to reclaim the head coaching job he was fired from at Minnesota State University, Mankato, or keep his new post at Minot State.
An arbitrator ruled that Minnesota State had no grounds when it fired Hoffner last May and ordered him reinstated with back pay. Hoffner has a news conference set for Tuesday. His attorneys declined Friday to shed light on his intentions.
Minot State athletic director Rick Hedberg says Hoffner told him he'd decide ''in the next few days.''
A judge cleared Hoffner of child pornography charges in 2012. Minnesota State fired him last May for reasons the school would not disclose. Minot State hired him in January.
