Suddenly, the play on the field is no longer the biggest story at the Fiesta Bowl.
Multiple reports have Chip Kelly interviewing with the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles over the coming weekend.
Although Kelly has brushed aside many questions about the NFL, his athletic director didn't sound like the most confident person that Kelly would be at Oregon next year.
"I think everybody's absolutely focused on the game," Rob Mullens said. "The rumors are what they are. Hey, Chip Kelly was 45-7 in four years, and we're having the kind of success that anyone would love to have, and with that comes interest from others. Oregon's a great program, we're built on a solid foundation.
"Hopefully Chip Kelly is our football coach for a long time, but the future is the future, and we'll be prepared for whichever way it goes."
