Keen Named Interim Head FB Coach at MSU

Posted: Updated:

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) _ Minnesota State, Mankato, has named Aaron Keen interim head football coach.
    As acting head coach, Keen led the Mavericks to a 13-1 record and the national Division II semifinals. The school said Monday his appointment will run through the end of the school year as a national search is conducted for a permanent head coach.
    Keen was pressed into duty when head coach Todd Hoffner was arrested and faced child pornography charges for videos of his children discovered on his university-issued cell phone.

    Keen's compensation for the remainder of this year will be $50,554.55, which is pro-rated from a salary equating to $101,109 annually.

    Hoffner was cleared by a judge, but has been reassigned to an administrative role. He has vowed to fight the reassignment.
