MANKATO, MN (AP) - The head football coach at Minnesota State, Mankato, has been charged with two counts related to child pornography.
 
Todd Hoffner was charged Wednesday in Blue Earth County.
 
The 46-year-old faces one count of using minors in a sexual performance or pornographic work, and one count of possessing child pornography. Both are felonies.
 
According to the complaint, police began investigating last week, after a university official went to them with three videos of children that were said to be on Hoffner's work-issued cellphone.
 
Hoffner's attorney, Jim Fleming, said his client intends to fight the charges and will be pleading not guilty at a later date. He had no further comment.
