The Oregon Ducks and head coach Chip Kelly arrived in Glendale, AZ Monday for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl amid the various NFL head coaching firings that were taking place. So naturally, Kelly is going to have to field questions about whether he's making the jump to the NFL. "I've got a game to play," Kelly said during the Fiesta Bowl's media day on Monday, via AP/ESPN. "We're playing in the Fiesta Bowl. That's the biggest thing in my life. If I allowed other things to get into my life, then they would be distractions, but there aren't. Our focus 100 percent is on the Fiesta Bowl." In other words: leave the man alone. He has a game to coach. A big game. The NFL talk can wait. "I know everybody wants to hear a different answer. And I know that at times when I don't give you guys the answer that you guys want, then I'm being evasive. I'm not being evasive." The Oregon coach is in much demand for teams clamouring to apply Kelly's innovations at the pro level. More and more teams see the NFL landscape changing as teams are utilizing college-style hurry up offenses that are working with sucess in New England, Seattle and Washington. "My whole thing since I've been here is that I'm going to do the best job I can every single day," Kelly said. "If that's good enough that other people look at me sometimes, I don't really care about that. I think too many people live in the future. We live in the moment."  var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
