“I’m elated for him,” Fleming said. “Todd felt pessimistic and was really down, thinking that maybe he’d never coach again. I always felt he had talents and skills that people would want.”

Minnesota State, Mankato, spokesman Dan Benson declined to discuss Hoffner’s case, citing state data privacy laws. He said the school will eventually conduct a national search before the “interim” tag would be removed from Keen’s job title.

“We’d just like to wish Todd Hoffner the best in his new opportunity,” Benson said.

Melodee Hoffner said that throughout the family’s nightmarish ordeal, plenty of people stood by them.

“Despite everything, there are not words to describe our gratitude to all the people in Mankato and outside who supported us,” she said.
