Things aren’t going very well on the 40 acres, but coach Strong has at least one man in his corner, Texas school president, Greg Fenves.
Had a great call w/ Coach Strong. We’re behind our student-athletes and coaches as they prepare for OU and rest of the season @Longhorn_FB

The public support comes as reports have surfaced that the Longhorns are working to fire coach Strong at the end of the year.
In fact, by now you’ve heard that moves were made after the loss to Oklahoma State as Charlie Strong has taken over the defense from longtime friend Vance Bedford.
However, the public support from Fenves doesn’t appear to just be a ploy to smooth things over until the end of the year.
I’ve said it before and will say again. Fans have no idea how bad university president Greg Fenves wants Charlie Strong to succeed at Texas.

A win on Saturday would go a long way to cool the flames under his seat.
