Business as usual for Oregon


AP Sports Writer

After a weekend rife with rumors and speculation, Chip Kelly and the Oregon Ducks are right back where they started.

Oregon’s enigmatic head coach flirted with a trio of NFL teams over three days before deciding late Sunday to stay with the No. 5 Ducks.

On Monday it was back to business. Kelly was at a coaches’ convention in Tennessee. Oregon did not formally announce Kelly’s decision — for the school his status hadn’t changed, he’s still the head coach — but athletic director Rob Mullens was expected to talk with reporters informally in the afternoon.

It was an anticlimactic end to the whirlwind that started soon after Oregon’s 35-17 Fiesta Bowl victory over Kansas State on Thursday night.
