MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota State University, Mankato, has reassigned a football coach who was cleared of child pornography charges last month.

The university said late Friday that head football coach Todd Hoffner will serve as the school’s assistant athletic director for facilities development.

In his new role, Hoffner will be responsible for helping develop the school’s master plan for athletics and recreation facilities. The new assignment takes effect immediately.

Hoffner was charged with possession of child porn in August after school officials found videos of his naked children on his work-issued cellphone.

A judge dismissed the criminal charges last month after concluding that the short videos of his children acting silly after a bath were not child porn and showed nothing illegal.
