Tarik Glenn (born May 25, 1976) is a former American football offensive tackle who played for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League (NFL). Glenn performed as two-way lineman at Bishop O'Dowd High School in Oakland, California.

He attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a four-year letterman and two-year starter. He started his career at defensive tackle before moving to offensive tackle in his junior year. He was selected with the Colts' first pick (#19 overall) in the 1997 NFL Draft. He has started all 16 games in seven of his ten pro seasons, and only missed six games in 2003 with a knee injury. He made his first Pro Bowl appearance in 2005. The NFL told Glenn that he would also appear in the 2006 Pro Bowl. However, they later informed him that he did not receive enough votes and that he would be an alternate. Glenn did end up participating in the 2006 Pro Bowl replacing the injured Willie Roaf. Tony Dungy, who generally backs the NFL, verbally stated that he was disappointed with the way in which the NFL handled this particular situation.

On July 24, 2007, Glenn announced his retirement. He said he lost his passion for football.[1] In August, 2011, Glenn became President of D.R.E.A.M. Alive, Inc., an Indianapolis-based non-profit organization founded by Glenn and his wife, Maya.

Glenn completed his BA degree in Social Welfare from UC Berkeley in 1999. He is currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration in the Executive Education program at the Purdue University Krannert School of Management with the expected graduation date of December 2012.
