LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Kansas Jayhawks' new football locker room is fully ready to go.

The Kansas football team permanently moved into it's remodeled locker room and player's lounge which cost around $2 million.

"Ya'll got to see the locker room huh? Not bad huh?" said Kansas football coach David Beaty. "We're awfully proud of it. You know along those same lines I'd like to say a huge thank you to our athletic director Dr. Zenger."

Here's what the Kansas Athletic department said is in the new area, "Upon entering, a display of KU football's Ring of Honor is engraved onto the wall and where white walls once encompassed the old locker room built in 2008, there are now silhouettes of all-time great Jayhawks who helped lay the Kansas football foundation. The player's lounge connected to the locker room will be comprised of a slate pool table, shuffleboard, foosball, air hockey, pop-a-shot, arcade games, a barber shop, three 4K televisions hooked to multiple gaming systems, theater seating and LED lighting."

The gaming system has caught the eye of junior quarterback Montell Cozart.

"My favorite spot is probably the couches where we have the Madden and the Play Station set up," said Cozart. "I'm considered to be the best on the team. So I'm just sitting there waiting for new opportunities and new teammates to come for a challenge everyday."
