Tom Herman wasn’t kidding when he preached about the upgrades that would be made to the Texas football facility.

A week after demolishing part of the Longhorns’ locker room with sledgehammers, the program took to social media to show off what is in the works ahead of Herman’s first season leading the program. Check out what the new lockers — including a 43-inch monitor — will look like:

Per Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman, the lockers cost in excess of $10,000 each. So for the 100+ players on the team… We’ll let you do the math.

That is quite the upgrade from the outdated lockers the team had before.

The full locker room is set for a renovation this summer. Herman made it clear from the time he was hired that changes were needed to keep up in the world of recruiting. The old locker room was outdated and Herman is looking to bring things into modern times to usher in a new era of Texas football.

Per, a full multimillion dollar renovation is scheduled to be completed over the summer. First, the Longhorns will hold their annual spring game on Saturday at Darrell K. Royal Stadium, where fans will get a glimpse of what Herman’s on-field product could look like once fall rolls around.
