It's not every show that you get to speak to a former University of Montana football star who is now also wearing a Super Bowl ring.

But that was the opportunity that presented itself to Scott Gurnsey and me recently, as we were joined by one of the most famous wearers of Montana legacy jersey #37 and current safeties coach for the world champion Philadelphia Eagles, Tim Hauck.  Tim was nice enough to take some time away from the celebrations going on in Philly the week after the Super Bowl to give us a call.

And oh yeah, Tim just happens to be the brother of new Grizzly head coach Bobby Hauck, who is embarking on his second term as the head guy. Tim talked about what being a Griz meant to him, what it was like coaching in the Super Bowl, the conversations he and Bobby had before he accepted the job for the second time, and lots of other interesting little tidbits. Tim is a warm, gracious guy and just a real treat to interview. We hope you Griz fans can give it a listen.
