University of Texas president Greg Fenves has weighed in on embattled head coach Charlie Strong on Twitter.

Strong's on the hot seat after the Longhorns have dropped the last two games to fall to 2-2. Just three days before Texas plays its arch-rival Oklahoma, Fenves backed Strong on social media.

Now, a key thing to realize here. Fenves didn't say anything beyond this season. Public votes of confidence are also often meaningless.

Regardless, Strong could ease some of the pressure on him by beating Oklahoma for the second year in a row. All eyes will be on the Red River Showdown this Saturday at high noon on FS1.
