The former Minnesota State University, Mankato football coach who was cleared of child porn allegations last fall is no longer working for the university.
And while MSU is not commenting on the circumstances of his departure, the union that represents faculty members has filed a grievance on behalf of Todd Hoffner.
The complaint was combined with a previous grievance the Inter Faculty Organization filed over Hoffner's suspension and reassignment in January. The union expects an arbitrator to consider both of the complaints this summer.
Hoffner was charged with child pornography last August after employees in the university's IT department discovered videos on his university cellphone of his children performing a skit after a bath.
But Hoffner was cleared of charges in November. Blue Earth County District Judge Krista Jass dismissed the charges, saying the videos were innocent child's play.
Hoffner had been reassigned within MSU's Athletics Department.
MSU-Mankato had a good season without Hoffner, who was not with the team during legal proceedings. The team went 13-1 and made the semifinals of the NCAA Division II football playoffs.
