"I have a great job at the University of Oregon and believe we have built a special football program here. That has been made possible because of the outstanding people I work for, the caliber of people I work with, the players who are here now as well as the level of players we are recruiting.
"The primary issues that have always been important to me are the quality of life, my family and the opportunities to win. The University of Oregon has always offered me all of those things.
"UCLA wanted to present to me a scenario that would offer all those things and asked if I would listen. That's as far as it ever went. I never considered it an interview, merely an opportunity for them to provide me with some information and insights into their program.
"I was approached by them on several occasions and finally agreed to allow them to come to Eugene and speak with me.
"You're always flattered when others want to talk to you but that's because of the success we've enjoyed based on our players, our support staff and our administration. I have been, and continue to be, 100 percent committed to the University of Oregon and our pursuit of a national championship."
