Carl Henry Hoeft (born 13 November 1974 in Auckland) is a former rugby union footballer from New Zealand, currently working as coach.

His usual position was at loosehead prop. He was a part of the All Blacks squad at both the 1999 and 2003 Rugby World Cup. Hoeft was known as a powerful scrummager.

He played club rugby for the Highlanders in New Zealand and for Castres Olympique and Toulouse in France. After his retirement from rugby in late 2011 he became coach and entered the provincial side Waikato's staff as assistant for the scrum.
