Kelly is shrugging off rumors, OregonLive has published.
"I'm coaching the Fiesta Bowl," Kelly said last week, according to OregonLive. "That's where my sole attention is. That's all I've ever said I plan to do. That's what I'm doing. I'm going to coach this team. That's it."
The Ducks coach tells reporters the gossip and speculation gives them a job.
"It gives you guys stuff to write about," he said. "I think you're entertained by it. Because I don't read it, it doesn't mean anything to me."
