MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Minnesota State-Mankato football coach Todd Hoffner is about to clear up the uncertainty over whether he will return to his old job.

Hoffner was fired by the school last May without publicly disclosing the reasons. The dismissal came after Hoffner had been accused, and then cleared, of having pornographic images of his own children on his work-issue cell phone.

An arbitrator last week ruled that Hoffner was unfairly fired, and ordered the school to reinstate him with back pay.

But going back isn't that simple. Hoffner was hired in January as head coach at Minot State University. He plans an afternoon news conference in Minneapolis to announce his intentions.
