Timothy Christian Hauck (born December 20, 1966 in Butte, Montana) is a former American football safety in the National Football League.[1]

Hauck had a long and fairly successful NFL career. In 1999 with the Eagles, he replaced Mike Zordich as the starting strong-side safety, forming a tandem with Brian Dawkins. However, in 2000, Hauck was replaced by Damon Moore, staying with the Eagles as a reserve safety until the end of the 2001 season.

He is unfortunately perhaps best remembered as the player who tackled in 1999 Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin and caused Irvin's career-ending spinal cord injury.

Hauck worked coaching the defensive secondary for the University of Montana. In 2008, he was hired by UCLA to coach the team's defensive secondary. In 2009, Hauck went to the NFL's Tennessee Titans to coach their defensive secondary.

On January 23, 2012, the Cleveland Browns announced the hiring of Hauck as the team's defensive backs coach.

On February 13th, 2013, UNLV announced the hiring of Hauck as the team's new defensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach under his brother, head coach Bobby Hauck.
