Florida has moved on from Chip Kelly as its potential next head coach, multiple sources have told Yahoo Sports.

Kelly has agreed to a five-year contract worth $23.3 million, with a buyout worth $9 million.

Kelly has been chased by Florida and UCLA, and Friday's report, if accurate, would appear to mean Kelly will most likely end up at UCLA and Florida likely is turning its attention to UCF coach Scott Frost.

UCLA fired Jim Mora last Sunday with a game left.

Kelly will be formally introduced to the UCLA community and to media on campus Monday afternoon.

Before today's announcement, Kelly had also been named as a person being considered for the vacant job at the University of Florida. Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch was named interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

Kelly confirmed the news to ESPN's "College GameDay" Saturday morning. After a five-year hiatus to try out the National Football League and TV, Kelly is heading to Los Angeles to take over at UCLA with a five-year contract worth $23.9 million. Mora was midway through his sixth season with the program.

The 54-year-old coach had a celebrated run in Eugene, Oregon, posting a 46-7 record and leading the Ducks to an appearance in the 2011 BCS title game, which Oregon lost to Auburn. "I look forward to his presence in Westwood".
