MANKATO, Minn. - It's been a historic run for the Minnesota State Mankato football team. The Mavericks found themselves undefeated and in the Division Two semifinal game Saturday.

"This is their biggest game ever," said Al Jirgl. 

But while fans cheered on the team, questions and opinions among the program's supporters remain regarding the future of the team's head coach.

Last week, charges were dropped against Todd Hoffner after the school found questionable pictures on his university-issued work cell phone. But while, nothing criminal was found against Hoffner, the university continues to conduct an internal investigation. It means Hoffner remains banned from campus and from the football program.

"I haven't talked to one person that doesn't support the coach," said long-time MSU supoorter Brad Koenig. "We feel he got a raw deal."

Deb Berg, an MSU parent feels differently.

"It was a campus phone and everyone is sensitive after Penn State," she said.  "I'm not sure I would want my kids to play for him."

MSU officials have not yet announced what they plan to do.

The Mavericks' season ended Saturday after falling to Valdosta State.
