DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Kelby Brown and Duke don't want to live in the past.

Even when that past includes the best football season in school history.

Brown and the Blue Devils are tired of being asked about Johnny Manziel and the Chick-fil-A Bowl, those 10 wins and their unexpected run to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game.

For Brown, it's easy to move beyond 2013 when this year carries so much promise.

The Blue Devils don't figure to be last-place picks anymore, as they perennially were. They enter 2014 as legitimate contenders in the Coastal Division.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Brown said "as the offseason moves on, you kind of get sick of hearing about last season."

The linebacker says "there's something exciting about moving on to what's ahead."
