Why MnSCU, MSU Mankato are calling for legislative audit of Hoffner case


Here's the letter that Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) system Chancellor Steven Rosenstone and Minnesota State University - Mankato President Richard Davenport sent to two legislators asking for a review of Mankato's firing of football coach Todd Hoffner.

The review would be conducted by the state Office of the Legislative Auditor and focus on the processes involved.
