The Mankato State football coach recently cleared of child porn charges will be reassigned at the university, WCCO reports.

WCCO says Hoffner has multiple years left on his contract but will not return as head coach of the Mavericks.

The report does not mention what Hoffner's new role would be if he choses to stay at the university.
