Drew Lock says 'beef' with former Texas coach Tom Herman has been 'squashed'
Drew Lock says he is no longer feuding with Tom Herman.
Lock’s Mizzou Tigers faced the Texas Longhorns, then coached by Herman, in the 2017 Texas Bowl. Herman infamously mocked Lock’s touchdown celebration after the Longhorns sealed the victory.

At the time, Lock chose to focus on getting Texas’ attention.
“They showed us a video at our luncheon (Tuesday) and it was all highlights of old Texas. … The saying was, ‘We are Texas,’” Lock said, per Dave Matter of the St. Louis-Post Dispatch. “You can look at it like this is a pretty big program. And when the head coach is mocking your dance move you must be doing something right. You’re not a nobody. You’re definitely doing something that’s catching other people’s attention. When you think about, ‘We are Texas,’ and ‘We are the amazing program we’ve always been,’ and the head coach is doing that, I’m going to walk with my head high and a little chip on my shoulder when that happened.”
Five years later, Lock and Herman have made up. Lock visited spring practice at FAU, where Herman is now the head coach, and shared a photo with the coach.
PSA: The beef has been squashed!

Lock is heading into his fifth NFL season. After spending his first 3 seasons in Denver, Lock was traded to the Seattle Seahawks in the deal for Russell Wilson. Lock did not make a regular-season appearance for the Seahawks in 2022, but re-signed with the team on a 1-year deal to be Geno Smith’s backup.

Sure glad they made up…now I can finally get some sleep
Yep it was a burning question that was keeping the whole world on edge.
Lock was a cocky kid. Looks like he’s matured. And he makes Hermann looks small. Hermann knows Lock could whoop his A these days so that makes it easier to forgive and forget
If this blood feud has been settled, then we can certainly solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Then the Russian-Ukrainian War. Maybe even the West coast-East coast rap beef. Dogs and cats living in harmony.
