Poll:
Do you think the Ducks will win the Fiesta Bowl?

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Since he arrived in Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl, Oregon coach Chip Kelly has been asked about coaching in the NFL every day.

The questions only figure to pick up after seven NFL coaches were fired on Monday.

As he has in the past, Kelly has deflected the speculation, saying his focus is on preparing the Ducks for their next game.

The 49-year-old coach has been the subject of NFL speculation the past few seasons and a year ago talked to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before saying he had unfinished business in Eugene.

The fifth-ranked Ducks play No. 7 Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Kelly will likely have to make a decision about his future not long after it's over.
