SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Given the 49ers 1-5 record heading into Sunday's game against the Bucs, the quality of the roster and the tenuous job status of the front office, coach Chip Kelly's name has been floated in social and national media as an attractive candidate for a number of college jobs.

Included in that list are LSU, Texas and even Oregon — the school Kelly coached to a 46-7 record from 2009-12 before taking the head coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Might Kelly look to eject after one year of his four-year, $24 million deal if given an opportunity?

Kelly was asked about that Thursday and lightened the mood with a joke before saying he was committed to the 49ers.

"Unless the media has an opportunity for me somewhere, I'll always explore those opportunities," Kelly said. "But I'm not going anywhere."
