Minot State has hired Tyler Hughes as its football coach to replace Todd Hoffner, who returned to his former job at Minnesota State, Mankato after being wrongly fired.
Hughes, who is currently the coach at Southern Virginia, accepted the offer Saturday. He was hired at Southern Virginia in March after spending a year at Ohio State as an assistant coach under Urban Meyer.
Minot State hired Hoffner in late January. He decided to return to Mankato after an arbitrator recently ruled he had been wrongly fired from the Minnesota school about a year ago after charges were dismissed in an unfounded child pornography case.
