Kelly succeeds Jim Mora, who was sacked last week after a 28-23 loss to USC.
Florida is no longer considering Chip Kelly as its potential next head coach, Yahoo Sports reported Friday afternoon, citing multiple unidentified sources. Kelly went 46-7 at OR between 2009-12, including victories in the Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl.
Kelly left OR for the National Football League following accusations of paying coaches to send players to his school. The University of Florida had been pursuing Kelly, but the Gators chose to move in another direction this week.
He began his head coaching career at the University of OR in 2009, leading the Ducks to a 10-3 record and a trip to the Rose Bowl in his first year at the helm.
"It is an absolute honor to join the Bruin Family, and I am grateful to Chancellor (Gene) Block and to Dan Guerrero for this incredible opportunity", Kelly said in a statement. Kelly was named the Pac-10 Coach of the Year in back-to-back seasons in 2009 and 2010, and Associated Press Coach of the Year in 2010. The NCAA sanctioned Kelly with "failure to monitor".
