I have never understood the great secrecy by Mankato State. The charge was thrown out. In spite of that, Mankato State wouldn't reinstate him as head coach and later fired him. Mankato State acts like a terrible dictatorship would in some other parts of the world. Hiding in the shadows. And the press doesn't say much of anything. And no politician says anything. What is going on?

I like how all of his old "friends" treated him like a leper, evan after the charges had been thrown out. This behavior is typical of phony, superficial classless jerks who call themselves "professionals." All coaches should be part-time and be required to be full-time teachers.

Yeah, with friends like that who needs enemies? The prosecutor should have been fired, hopefully not re-elected. As far as secrecy, there are data laws that prevent disclosure BUT, once the arbitration is over and the case is officially closed then it can all be made public.

Minot got a good coach and a good man. I'd be real leery of taking any kind of job at MSU after seeing how they mishandled this situation and how they shafted Hoffner. MSU seems like a prime target for some investigative reporting at this point I'd wager.

They're both DII right? If there's any justice, Minot will play Man-laimo State and kick their tail into the next century. This is a huge blot on Mankato State's record. If I were at any of the other "Minnesota State" campuses I'd pray that people continue to refer to Mankato state as Mankato State. What an embarrassment to the system.

Good for him. Geez, if anyone found our home videos of our kids singing and playing in the bathtub I guess I'd lose my job, have my character defamed and my name dragged through the mud. Welcome to the suspecting, guilty until proven innocent...and even after that...world we live in.
