“Him staying just shows how tight of a family it is in Eugene, and I can’t wait to be a part of it,” kicker Matt Wogan (Indian Trail, N.C./Porter Ridge) said. “Just extremely happy to see everything stay the same.”

A year after turning down the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kelly interviewed with the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles before deciding to remain at Oregon. He will return to a team that currently has the nation’s No. 22 recruiting class and is coming off another big BCS bowl win.
