Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost was named the new head coach of Central Florida earlier this week, and while the team is happy to see him get a shot at a head coaching job, it seems the mascot is having a little trouble coping with the separation.

The Oregon Duck Twitter account showed the mascot flipping between anger and despair while trying to ease its feelings on Wednesday, as the realization set in that the former Nebraska quarterback would no longer be on the team’s sidelines.

Frost was promoted to offensive coordinator at Oregon in 2012, when Mark Helfrich took over as head coach following Chip Kelly’s departure. The 40-year-old has previously worked as co-defensive coordinator at Northern Iowa before joining the Ducks as a wide receivers coach.
