The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

OR­LANDO, FLA. | San Fran­cisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly said Wed­nes­day that he has no in­ter­est in the Ore­gon Ducks coach­ing job and has not spo­ken to any­one as­so­ci­ated with the pro­gram about it.

Kelly was head coach at Ore­gon from 2009 to 2012, com­pil­ing a 46-7 record. He won at least a share of the con­fer­ence ti­tle every sea­son he was head coach and led the Ducks to the 2011 BCS na­tional cham­pi­onship game, where they lost to Auburn.

Ore­gon fired Kelly’s suc­ces­sor, Mark Hel­frich, on Tues­day af­ter four sea­sons and a 37-16 record. The Ducks went 4-8 this sea­son, their first los­ing sea­son since 2004.

Kelly said he spoke to Hel­frich on Wed­nes­day morn­ing to of­fer sup­port.

When asked if he was still happy in San Fran­cisco, Kelly sim­ply said, “Yep.”

Kelly said no one from Ore­gon has con­tacted him about the job or asked for his in­put on hir­ing a new coach.
