MANKATO — A Minnesota State, Mankato, football coach facing child pornography charges gets a hearing today.

Todd Hoffner’s attorney filed a motion to dismiss the charges ahead of the pretrial hearing in Blue Earth County District Court.

Hoffner was put on paid leave and charged in August with two felony counts after videos of his children were found on his university-issued cellphone.
