It's official:Tim Hauck, who has spent the past four years of the staff at the University of Montana, has been hired as an assistant coach at UCLA, Bruin head coach Rick Neuheisel announced today. Hauck will assist defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker with the secondary.
"Tim was an outstanding college football player and enjoyed a long, productive career in the NFL," said Neuheisel. "He has transitioned nicely into the coaching profession and will be a nice fit with DeWayne in the secondary. Our defensive backs will benefit from his experience as a player and a coach."
During Hauck's four years at his alma mater, Montana compiled a record of 43-10, making the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision playoffs all four years, including the title game in 2004.
This past season, Hauck coached the Montana secondary. The Grizzlies ranked 10th nationally in pass efficiency defense and allowed just eight touchdowns while making 17 interceptions en route to a record of 11-1. Strong safety Colt Anderson was named first-team All-Big Sky Conference.

Hauck, 41, played safety in the National Football League for 13 seasons, retiring in 2002. He originally signed with the New England Patriots as a free agent in 1990 and played for Green Bay, Seattle, Denver, Indianapolis, Philadelphia and San Francisco.Another coach with ridiculous amount of experience in the League.
