EUGENE, ORE. (AP) - The University of Oregon and coach Chip Kelly have agreed to a contract extension through 2015 that is worth $20.5 million.

The university says the new contract will pay Kelly $2.4 million in addition to incentives tied to performance this year.

Kelly led the Ducks to a 10-3 overall record, the Pac-10 championship and a Rose Bowl berth in his first season as head coach a year ago. He is the only Pac-10 coach to win the conference title in his first year.

The fourth-ranked Ducks are 4-0 this season heading into a key game against No. 9 Stanford on Saturday.
