Florida Gators coach Jim McElwain said he has not heard from the Oregon Ducks, and he's not interested in joining them.

"Look, I've got a heck of a job," McElwain said. "In case anybody checked, this is the University of Florida. We're playing in what they call the SEC championship game. It really hasn't crossed my mind." 

McElwain said he suspects that the rumor emerged for recruiting reasons, and he spent a lot of time on the phone Tuesday night talking with prospects about it.
