Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was asked about his interest in the now open job at USC and said he isn't appealed by the position.

The Trojans fired their coach, Lane Kiffin, early Sunday morning after Arizona State routed USC 62-41.

Kelly was asked what he would do if USC reached out to him and responded he does not “deal with hypotheticals.” Asked if he would entertain an offer from USC, Kelly said, “No.”

“I’m the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles,” Kelly said, according to Comcast SportsNet Philly. “I’m very, very excited to be here. I’m not entertaining anything like that. I’m here.”

Kelly left the University of Oregon in January and signed a five-year deal worth a reported $32.5 million to join the Eagles.

Kelly was hit with an 18-month show cause penalty by the NCAA in January for rules infractions by the Ducks football program when he was the head coach.
