Kelly, the 17th head coach in the school's history, is expected to be introduced to the public at UCLA on Monday. Florida had kept its options open while engaged with Kelly and is now prepared to pursue those other candidates.
The Bruins fired coach Jim Mora on Sunday and immediately jumped into the Kelly sweepstakes. UCLA fired Jim Mora after the Bruins lost to crosstown rival USC in their last away game of the season. His high-powered and high-paced offense helped lead the Ducks to a 46-7 record and multiple bowls in 4 years.
He won 12 games in each of his last three years with OR and went 10-3 in his first season with the school in 2009. Kelly has worked as a TV analyst this season after spending the previous four as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers (2016) and Philadelphia Eagles (2013-15).

Viacom18 producers have reportedly added that they want the United Kingdom to release the film on the same date as India. The members of the group protested against Gowariker's film stating that Akbar had no Rajput queen named Jodhaa Bai.
FOX Sports college football reporter Bruce Feldman said on Saturday that Kelly was impressed with Florida and "really liked the UF brass".
Kelly brings plenty of experience to Los Angeles as he was the head coach with OR, going 46-7 in four seasons with the Ducks and leading them to three conference titles, another division title and a berth in the national title game in 2010. "We got a good win last night and heading to a bowl game, so things are getting better here for the UCLA football program".
