The former Hill-Murray football coach that was citied for soliciting a prostitute in a police sting struck a deal that would dismiss the misdemeanor charge against him.

The Pioneer Press reports 54-year-old Mark Mauer of Woodbury, the cousin of Twins catcher Joe Mauer, was ordered Monday to pay $500 in court fees and attend an eight-hour class on sex trafficking in order for the citation to be dismissed.

Mauer was one of 19 men arrested last February in a two-day prostitution sting at a Fridley hotel. Police said Mauer met an undercover officer posing as a prostitute and offered her $100 in exchange for "full service."

Mauer resigned from the Maplewood-based Catholic prep school after his first season as coach. Defensive Coordinator Tony Danna was promoted to varsity head coach to replace Mauer.
