EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Tom Izzo tells The Associated Press
he has not been contacted by Oregon, he's happy at Michigan State
and is focused on trying to win another national championship.

Izzo faced questions Monday about the Ducks' interest in him after KEZI-TV reported that Oregon plans to offer him college basketball's largest contract with help from Nike co-founder Phil Knight.

Kentucky gave John Calipari a $31.65 million, eight-year contract last year, the largest known deal for a college basketball coach. Private schools, such as Duke, aren't required by law to reveal what it pays coaches.

Izzo is earning more than $3 million per season at Michigan State and is under contract through 2016.
