ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) San Francisco 49ers head 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.
